Loudoun County will conduct a Democratic and Republican primary election on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. Here are six things for voters to know ahead of time.

1.  Know When to Vote

Polls in Loudoun County will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 12, 2018. The last day to vote absentee in person is Saturday, June 9, 2018. The Office of Elections at 750 Miller Drive S.E., Suite C, in Leesburg will be open June 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for absentee voting.

2.  Know Where to Vote
Most voters in Loudoun will vote at their normal polling location. They can check their voter card for the correct information. Please note that several precinct changes have been made since the last election. New voter cards were mailed to the voters impacted by these changes. The changes include: 
  • Precinct 419-J.L. Simpson: A boundary line was adjusted and the precinct was renamed to 422-Sycolin Creek. Voting will take place at Sycolin Creek Elementary School, 21100 Evergreen Mills Road, Leesburg. Some voters closer to the Town of Leesburg were shifted and will be voting in Precinct 408-Evergreen at the Evergreen Mill Elementary School, 491 Evergreen Mill Road S.E., Leesburg.
  • Precinct 507-Greenway: Voting location is J.L. Simpson Middle School, 490 Evergreen Mill Road S.E., Leesburg.
  • Precinct 503-Dry Mill: Voting location is Loudoun County High School, 415 Dry Mill Road S.W. Leesburg. 
  • Precinct 506-Brandon Park: Voting location is Douglass Community Center, 405 E. Market Street, Leesburg. 
  • Precinct 707-Claude Moore Park: Due to the temporary closure of Claude Moore Recreation and Community Center, voting will take place at the Heritage farm museum. Voters should still enter the park at 46105 Loudoun Park Lane and will be directed to the parking area for the museum. This is a temporary change for the primary election only.
Voters may also look up their polling place and related information online at vote.elections.virginia.gov.

3. Watch for School Buses and Students on Election Day
“School will be in session on June 12, so we want to remind voters to watch for buses and students on Election Day when entering and exiting the voting locations,” said General Registrar Judy Brown. “We have worked with Loudoun County Public Schools to obtain voting spaces with outside entrances for voters which will limit access to other areas of the school.  Wherever this was not possible, staff will monitor the entrance and ensure voters go directly to the voting area and exit after voting. We are working together with school officials to ensure the safety of all children on Election Day.”

4.  Bring Your Voter ID with You
Voters are required to show an acceptable form of photo identification at their precinct.  Acceptable forms of photo ID include a Virginia DMV-issued driver’s license, a U.S. passport, a student photo ID from a college or university located in Virginia, or a government- issued photo ID.  Voters who do not have one of these forms of photo ID are eligible for a free Virginia Voter Photo ID Card. More information is online at www.loudoun.gov/VoterID.

5. Know Who is on the Ballot
The primary election is open to all registered voters in Loudoun County. The Commonwealth of Virginia does not recognize party affiliation when registering citizens to vote. Voters will be asked to choose which primary they wish to vote in upon arrival at the polls on Election Day. 
  • Democratic Party Primary: Candidates for U.S. House of Representatives (10th District) 
  • Republican Party Primary: Candidates for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives (10th District) 
6.  Stay Informed Before, During and After the Election
  • Text LCVOTES to 888777 to receive text alerts from the Loudoun County Office of Elections and Voter Registration or sign up for the new Election Update category through Alert Loudoun, the county’s email and text notification system. 
  • Follow the Office of Elections and Voter Registration on Facebook and Twitter. Loudoun County Government also posts general information on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Get election results at www.loudoun.gov/vote and from the Virginia Department of Elections.
