There are primary elections in Virginia and Fairfax County on Tuesday, June 13. The polls will be open 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Here is what you can do to be prepared to vote.
Watch our June 12 Facebook Live with General Registrar Cameron Sasnett:
Please take a few minutes to double-check your poll location, even if you have been voting in the same place for years. It could save you frustration and time on June 13.
If you are planning to vote on your way home from work, keep in mind you need to be in line at your poll location by 7 p.m. in order to vote – give yourself plenty of travel time.
Note: Fairfax County Public Schools will be open on Tuesday, June 13. Voters are encouraged to vote before or after school hours if possible and to postpone voting during the times when school buses are dropping off or picking up students.
There are several forms of acceptable photo ID:
- Virginia driver’s license
