Loudoun County voters will go to the polls Tuesday, November 8, 2022, for a general election. Here are six important things Loudoun County election officials would like voters to know before heading to the polls:
1. Know When to Vote
- Polls in Loudoun County will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
- Early voting continues in Loudoun through Saturday, November 5. Locations and hours for early voting are online at loudoun.gov/voteearly.
- Completed absentee ballots may be returned by mail (postmarked no later than November 8), dropped off at the 24/7 drop box at the Office of Elections and Voter Registration (750 Miller Dr. SE, Leesburg) or early voting sites. Voters may also drop off their ballots at any polling place up to 7:00 p.m. on November 8.
- Note: Voters who have requested and received an absentee ballot by mail, but who change their mind and want to vote in person, must bring the ballot with them to the polling place. This will likely also cause a longer-than-normal wait time for the voter because of the process involved in surrendering the ballot.
2. Know Where to Vote
Most voters will cast their ballots at their normal polling location. There is a change for one Loudoun County precinct and an address clarification for another.
- Precinct 307 – Middleburg will vote at the Middleburg American Legion Post 295, located at 111 The Plains Road in Middleburg.
- Precinct 506 – Brandon Park will vote at Frederick Douglass Elementary School, 510 Principal Drummond Way SE, Leesburg. (Voters received a postcard from state election officials earlier in the year with an incorrect address.)
Anyone who is not sure about where to vote may check their voter registration card or look up their polling place and related information online at vote.elections.virginia.gov. A list of polling places in Loudoun is available at loudoun.gov/polls.
Also, curbside voting is available at all polling places for individuals who have mobility issues.
3. Bring Identification
Voters will be asked to show an acceptable form of identification, such as a Virginia DMV-issued driver’s license. Voters who do not have an acceptable form of ID can sign an ID statement affirming their identity and they will be able to vote a regular ballot.
4. Know Who and What is on the Ballot
Offices on the November 8 ballot in Loudoun County include the 10th Congressional District seat; Loudoun County School Board members for the Broad Run and Leesburg Districts; mayor and town council in Hamilton, Hillsboro, Leesburg, Lovettsville and Purcellville; and a town council seat in Round Hill. Three county government bond questions will also be on the ballot. Sample ballots are online at loudoun.gov/novemberelection.
5. Know Who Can Vote
All registered voters in Loudoun County are eligible to vote in the general election. A new feature this year is what is referred to as Same Day Voter Registration, allowing voters to register and vote a provisional ballot up to and including Election Day. Provisional ballots are used by voters who do not appear on the list of registered voters at their polling location. Provisional ballots are not processed by a vote counting machine at the time of voting; they are subject to approval by the local electoral board.
6. Stay Informed
