Tomorrow is primary election day in Virginia, and in Roanoke County, in-person voting will be much different than usual, with far fewer locations than normal. Instead of the usual 30+ polling sites, there are just five super precincts as they are being called, one in each magisterial district. WFIR’s Evan has the story.
FROM ROANOKE COUNTY:
Due to COVID-19, Roanoke County is unable to open or adequately and safely staff all of our 33 regular polling locations for the upcoming June 23rd Republican Primary Election. As a result, the June 23rd Election will take place in five SUPER-PRECINCTS located in each of the County’s five magisterial districts. This change is TEMPORARY, has been approved by the Virginia Department of Elections, and is only anticipated to be in effect
for the June 23rd Election. Registered voters who want to participate in the June 23rd Republican Primary Election must either vote absentee OR in person at their magisterial district’s TEMPORARY SUPER-PRECINCT, which are as follows:
Catawba Magisterial District: GLENVAR MIDDLE SCHOOL 4555 Malus Drive
Hollins Magisterial District: MOUNTAIN VIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 5901 Plantation Circle
Windsor Hills Magisterial District: HIDDEN VALLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL 4902 Hidden Valley School Road
Vinton Magisterial District: WILIAM BYRD HIGH SCHOOL 2902 Washington Avenue
Cave Spring Magisterial District: HIDDEN VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL 5000 Titan Trail
All registered voters in Roanoke County will receive a postcard informing them of their regular precinct/magisterial district assignment and their TEMPORARY SUPER-PRECINCT assignment. The Roanoke County Electoral Board urges voters to bring these cards with them to their TEMPORARY SUPER-PRECINCT on Election Day to ensure that they go to the correct polling location and simplify the check-in process. All five SUPERPRECINCTS will be open from 6 AM to 7 PM on June 23rd.
