Fairfax County is the only county in Virginia history with a federal mandate to provide language assistance to English-deficient Hispanic voters in a presidential election — a development delighting activists, straining election officials and worrying those who argue that voters should know English well enough to participate without help.
Nearly one-third of active voters in Fairfax County — Virginia's most populous jurisdiction and a crucial battleground in the Old Dominion — might not be able to vote or could end up going to the wrong polling place on Election Day, according to the county's Office of Elections.
Ms. Quinn said her office had twice tried to get funding to do an all-county mailing of voter cards, which list polling places, but with tight budgets it had not been possible.
Coupled with a new federal classification requiring the county to provide Spanish-language voting material for English-deficient Hispanic voters, a new voter identification law in the state, and the fact that it's a presidential year, Ms. Quinn said the issue is more than just adjusting for an increased workload.
