Loudoun County election officials remind voters in the Towns of Hamilton, Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville and Round Hill that absentee voting for the May 5, 2020, town elections begins Friday, March 20, 2020. 

Recognizing the spread of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), the Loudoun County Office of Elections and Voter Registration encourages voters to cast absentee ballots in the May elections. Anyone seeking to vote absentee in the May 2020 elections may choose the reason “2A-My disability or illness” for absentee voting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Voters who choose the absentee option should do so as soon as possible so they can get their ballots in time to return them by mail by election day. Voters may apply for an absentee ballot online.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, social distancing measures will be in place for in-person absentee voting at the Office of Elections and Voter Registration, 750 Miller Drive SE, Suite C in Leesburg, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Only curbside absentee voting will be offered. There will be signs directing voters to contact election officials upon their arrival.

Voters will not be permitted in the office to vote.

The final day to vote an absentee ballot in person is Saturday, May 2, 2020. The Office of Elections and Voter Registration will be open May 2 for curbside absentee voting, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Voters do not have to apply in advance to vote absentee in person.

Also as part of the response to COVID-19, election officials ask voters to call ahead for an appointment if they need to conduct any business other than absentee voting or voter registration. Call 703-777-0380. You may also email the office.
