The national Voter Registration Act allows citizens the chance to apply to register to vote at their local D-M-V office. However, many Virginians didn't get to vote Tuesday because their applications were never processed.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Richmond; ]

D-M-V officials say no transaction can be completed until a customer is asked if he or she would like to apply to register to vote. If the answer is "yes," the customer fills out an application- which is then forwarded to the State Board of Elections. At that point, D-M-V says it's up to election officials and the customer to make sure the application goes through.

The National Transportation Safety Board has released more details on the crash of the Hendrick Motorsports plane in Patrick County.
The preliminary report does not draw any conclusions about the cause of the accident, but it indicates the plane did not perform the appropriate maneuver after it missed its approach to the runway.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Patrick Co.]


The missed approach procedure at Blue Ridge Airport calls for a climbing right turn, but the plane never altered its course.
Three miles beyond the airport, the plane fell below 1800 feet and controllers lost its altitude readout.
Three minutes after that, the flight crew indicated a missed approach, and controllers advised the crew to climb... but there were no more radio transmissions.

Roller disco has become popular again in the U-K.

Tony Askew says it's fun entertainment for people who have grown tired of haning out in bars.
But it is not without risks. So far this year there have been four broken wrists and one broken ankle.
