As Loudoun County implements new local election districts, the Office of Elections and Voter Registration is mailing information to all registered voters to provide them with current information on their precincts and polling places. The new election districts were adopted by the Board of Supervisors as part of the redistricting process that occurred after the 2020 census.
Upcoming Elections and Mail to Registered Voters
The redrawn districts will be used for the first time in the upcoming June 20, 2023, Democratic primary election and the November 7, 2023, general election. There is no Republican primary this year.
Voters are receiving notices by mail from the Office of Elections and Voter Registration that indicate their precinct and polling place information. Any resident who receives a notice for a voter who no longer lives at the address is encouraged to let the Office of Elections know by writing “return to sender” on the envelope and putting the letter back in the mail. Officials will use the returned letters to update their records. The Office of Elections cannot update voting records by phone.
Early voting for the June 20, 2023, primary election begins Friday, May 5, 2023. Information about the upcoming June primary and the November general election, including voting deadlines, sample ballots, and how to vote at home, is posted at loudoun.gov/upcomingelections.
The county’s precinct boundaries and polling places have been adjusted to align with new state and local election district boundaries, creating some new precincts and polling places. Earlier this year, the Office of the Attorney General of Virginia issued a “certification of no objection” to the changes, which include revisions to the boundaries of 17 precincts.
In addition, the changes include the temporary relocation of polling places for the Algonkian, Potomac Falls and Cool Springs precincts due to ongoing construction at their previous polling places. The changes for the Algonkian, Potomac Falls and Cool Springs precincts are in effect only for the June 2023 primary.
The Middleburg Precinct is also temporarily relocated to the Middleburg American Legion Post 295, 111 The Plains Road, until construction of the new Middleburg Town Hall is completed.
Online Resources: Districts, Precincts and Polling Places
All of the updated information voters need to find information about election districts, precincts and polling places is posted online. The online resources will help voters determine their local, state and congressional districts prior to voting.
Background on New Local Election Districts
The county’s new election districts are the result of a process required by law that was informed by the 2020 census and input from the public. Based on the 2020 census, the population of each district now ranges between 50,468 and 54,881 residents.
As part of the redistricting process, the Board of Supervisors voted to name one newly redrawn district as the Little River District. The Blue Ridge District name is being retired. The names of the county’s seven other election districts, also redrawn, remain the same.
