Early voting under way for June 11 Democratic primary

Fairfax County is holding a Democratic primary election for local and state offices on Tuesday, June 11.

Voters in the Annandale/Mason District could see these candidates on the ballot (*indicates incumbent), depending where you live: 
  • Fairfax County of Board of Supervisors chair – Tim Chapman, Ryan McElveen, Jeff McKay, Alicia Plerhoples.
  • Board of Supervisors member for the Braddock District – Irma Corado and James Walkinshaw.  
  • Fairfax commonwealth’s attorney – Steve Descano and Raymond Morrogh (*).
  • Virginia Senate: 35th District – Dick Saslaw (*), Yasmine Taeb, and Karen Torrent.
  • Virginia House of Delegates, 38th District – Andres Jimenez and Kaye Kory (*).
  • Virginia House of Delegates, 49th District – Alfonso Lopez (*) and JD Spain.
While only Democratic candidates will be the ballot, any registered voter can vote on June 11. Virginia holds open primaries, and voters don’t register by party.

There is no Republican primary, as the Republicans have chosen another method to select candidates.

Voting on June 11 will take place 6 a.m.-7 p.m. at all the regular polling places. Because some poll locations have changed since the November 2018 general election, voters should confirm their polling place online through the Virginia Department of Elections. Voters must bring an acceptable photo ID.

In-person absentee voting is available until 5 p.m. until June 8. Currently, the only place to vote absentee in-person is the Fairfax County Government Center, Conference Rooms 2 & 3, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, during these times:
  • Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays: 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
  • Thursdays: 8 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Saturdays, June 1 and June 8: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
On June 8 only, 10 extra absentee voting locations will be open, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., including the Mason District Government Center on Columbia Pike.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is 5 p.m. on June 4. Absentee ballots must be turned into the Office of Elections by 7 p.m. on June 11.
