MATHEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Residents of Mathews County will be able to vote on the future of the county’s Confederate monument next year.

The county’s board of supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday night for a referendum in the November 2021 election.

It comes a few weeks after the Mathews County School Board voted to change name of Lee-Jackson Elementary School, as communities across the commonwealth and country remove symbols honoring former Confederate soldiers.
