UPDATE: In voting that concluded on Election Day Nov. 8, Henrico voters approved the four questions in the bond referendum. Details: https://henrico.us/news/2022/11/henrico-voters-approve-all-4-bond-referendum-questions/.
Henrico County voters will have the opportunity to participate in a bond referendum to approve more than $511 million in funding for proposed county capital projects — including new and renovated schools, firehouses and parks — as part of the 2022 general election.
The bond referendum will appear as four questions on the ballot, with a separate question for each project category: schools; recreation and parks; fire stations and public safety facilities; and stormwater drainage. Voters may cast a “yes” or “no” vote for each of the four questions; individual categories can be approved or rejected. Approval of a category by a majority of the votes cast authorizes the county to contract debt and issue its general obligation bonds to fund the projects.
See the project category pages for the referendum questions as they will appear on the ballot, as well as the proposed projects and their funding amounts (only the questions will appear on the ballot). Absentee voting, including in-person, began on Friday, Sept. 23. Election Day was Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022.
See the proposed project map for the 2022 Bond Referendum.
