If your attention has been riveted by the drama of Democrats vs. Republicans in the current election season, you might be surprised by a couple of constitutional amendments that also will appear on Virginia ballots on Nov. 6.

The 2018 midterm elections are just around the corner, and the last day to register to vote is only one week away.

The United States Department of Transportation has extended the agricultural exemption for the electronic logging device mandate another 90 days.
