Loudoun County voters will go to the polls Tuesday, November 3, 2020, for a general election. Here are five important things Loudoun County election officials would like voters to know about the election:
1. Know When to Vote
2. Know Where to Vote
Most voters will cast their ballots at their normal polling location on Election Day. However, there are some changes that that will affect the location of in-person voting at three precincts on November 3.
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.
3. Bring Identification and Face Covering; Observe Social Distancing
Voters are required to show an acceptable form of identification at their precinct. Acceptable forms of ID include a Virginia DMV-issued driver’s license, voter registration card, U.S. passport, student ID from a college or university located in Virginia, government-issued ID or an employer-issued ID.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, voters will be required to wear a face covering when entering the polling place. Also, due to social distancing measures in place, voting may take longer than usual, so voters should plan accordingly.
4. Know What to Do if You Change Your Mind about Voting Absentee
Voters who have requested and received an absentee ballot by mail, but who then change their mind and want to vote in person, must bring the ballot with them to the polling place in order to vote. This will likely also cause a longer-than-normal wait time for the voter because of the process involved in surrendering the ballot.
5. Know Who and What is on the Ballot
Offices on the November 3 ballot include president and vice president of the United States, members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, Leesburg mayor and town council, Hillsboro mayor and town council, Round Hill town council, Virginia constitutional amendments and Loudoun County bond questions. Sample ballots are online at loudoun.gov/NovemberElection.
