I am a poll worker in Fairfax City. As Tuesday was primary-election day in Virginia, I could not go to the Capitals parade. This affected thousands of poll workers — many of whom may be Capitals fans — just in Northern Virginia. Perhaps the team could make an appearance in Virginia with the Stanley Cup at a later date. I know this fan would go.
