Many Loudoun County residents will be heading to the polls for the General Election Nov. 7, but the election officials want to remind about 7,200 voters that their polling locations may have changed.
Virginia voters will be deciding the offices of governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and all members of the House of Delegates. There will also be two Loudoun County bond questions and voters in the towns of Leesburg and Round Hill will vote in a special election to fill vacated town council seats. Sample ballots are available at Loudoun.gov/election2017.
Earlier this year, the Board of Supervisors approved a request by the Voter Registration and Elections Office to create three new voting precincts, which affects voters in the Blue Ridge Election District. Voter cards have been mailed to approximately 7,200 voters to notify them of the changes.
“Due to the growth in the southeastern section of the county, we thought the new precincts were necessary to keep polling places at a manageable size and to help ensure that voters experience a smooth and relatively quick process at the polls on Election Day,” General Registrar Judy Brown said.
The new precincts are as follows:
- Precinct 319 – John Champe, voting at John Champe High School, 41535 Sacred Mountain Street, Aldie, 20105.
- Precinct 320 – Stone Hill, voting at Stone Hill Middle School, 23415 Evergreen Ridge Drive, Ashburn, 20148.
- Precinct 321 – Brambleton Middle, voting at Brambleton Middle School, 23070 Learning Circle, Ashburn, 20148.
