Curbside Voting

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, social distancing measures are 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 is offered. There are signs directing voters to contact election officials upon their arrival.

Voter Eligibility

As Virginia does not recognize party affiliation in voter registration, all registered voters are eligible to vote in the Republican primary. However, election officials remind residents that only voters in the western Loudoun towns of Hamilton, Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville and Round Hill are eligible to vote in the municipal elections. 

“We continue to have voters who are not town residents asking for absentee ballots. While we appreciate the eagerness of people to exercise their right to vote, we need to remind everyone that for these municipal elections, you must be a resident of one of these five western Loudoun towns in order to apply for an absentee ballot for these elections. As a reminder, the towns of Hillsboro and Leesburg will have elections in November,” said Loudoun County General Registrar Judy Brown.
