Office of Elections workers (copy)

Workers in the Loudoun County Office of Elections open ballots Oct. 28, six days prior to Election Day in this Loudoun Times-Mirror file photo.

The Loudoun County Office of Elections has been slammed with a record number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests about the equipment, process and guides used to certify the 2020 general election outcomes since Aug. 1 mostly from one individual, according to a review of those requests by Loudoun Times-Mirror.

While neighboring jurisdictions in Fairfax, Prince William and Fauquier counties also have seen an increase in similar requests, interviews and reviews reveal those figures do not compare with those received by Loudoun. This is a pattern that the Virginia State Board of Elections also observed.

This is a blatant attempt to provoke chaos in an otherwise model operation. Sad that the Republicans would do this. Lesson learned Vote Blue
