What to Expect at the Polling Place for the June 23rd Republican Primary

Voters in the June 23rd Republican Primary will see a different polling place configuration when they go to vote next Tuesday. For the safety of our voters and workers, we will allow only one voter in the polling place at a time. All other voters will wait outside and practice social distancing. The precinct will be sanitized between each voter, and the next voter will be called in. This may create lines and an extended waiting period, so give yourself plenty of time to vote, and please be patient with our Officers of Election. Some polling places will have volunteers from the Virginia Medical Reserve Corps to help with COViD 19 protocol and sanitization.
Masks will be required inside the polling place. If you do not have a mask on you will be asked to vote outside. As usual we will be offering curbside voting for those voters with mobility issues or who otherwise need assistance. If you need assistance inside the polls, our officers will be happy to help; you do not need to bring someone in to help.

The Voter Registration Office will be open for in-person absentee voting Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, 9-5. Friday has been recognized as a state holiday by the governor celebrating Juneteenth.

• Hand sanitizer will be available, but please make sure your hands are dry when handling the ballot.
• You will need a photo ID to check in.
• Every voter will get their own pen and folder to keep as souvenirs.
• Please be patient with our Officers. This is new to many of them as well.
• Again, you may encounter lines, please plan accordingly.
If you have any questions, please call us. 678-0480
