Blood banks sought to capitalize on election day, working to attract voters with donor stickers to place next to I Voted stickers and snacks.

“It’s just another civic sort of thing they can do on this day when a lot of people are off,” said AJ Johnson, of Inova Blood Donor Services, Dulles Town Center.  

Johnson said Inova blood banks are experiencing an extreme platelet shortage, as well as a shortage of O negative and B negative blood.
