Loudoun County Update
- Record Number of Absentee Voters: Voters in Thursday’s municipal elections in Loudoun heeded the call of election officials to vote absentee as a way to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Sixty-three percent of the 2,722 voters in the Lovettsville, Middleburg and Purcellville elections voted absentee. A slightly larger percentage, 65%, cast absentee ballots in the May 19 elections in Hamilton and Round Hill. The previous record for absentee voting in Loudoun was 17% in the 2016 presidential election. Officials hope a large percentage of voters in the upcoming June 23, 2020, primary election also will vote absentee.
