In addition to electing a U.S. president and vice president this year, Virginians will elect 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Now is the time to question the candidates, ask for their conservation platform, get involved in the campaign of your choice and make the case for conservation. Congress is in recess until after Labor Day so many incumbents and their challengers are out and about campaigning.
The currently-listed dates of the debates for U.S. president candidates are September 26, October 9 and October 19. The candidates for vice president will debate on October 4 in Farmville, Virginia.
