The Loudoun County Office of Elections is scheduled to speak publicly on Sept. 1 to address questions and concerns about the upcoming General Election.
Some of the concerns locally and nationwide stem around safety measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic, mail-in ballots and foreign interference.
Offices on the Loudoun ballot will include president and vice president of the United States, members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, Virginia constitutional amendments and Loudoun County bond questions. Some local ballots will also include offices for the mayor and town council seats in Leesburg and Hillsboro.
Due to the large number of inquiries about the safety of the upcoming election, Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Phyllis Randall (D-At Large) said she wanted to have the elections office staff answer questions at the upcoming business meeting.
“At this point, the most efficient way to answer your questions is to invite the Loudoun County Office of Elections to the Board of Supervisors meeting on Sept. 1,” Randall (D-At Large) said in a message to the public. “Director Judy Brown and her staff will provide a full report to the board. It is my goal that every Loudoun voter is assured that their vote will be counted.”
The business meeting will be televised live on the Loudoun County Government cable channel — Comcast Government Channel 23, Open Band Channel 40 and Verizon FiOS Channel 40. Meetings can also be viewed live online via loudoun.gov/meetings.
