Early In-Person Voting

All registered voters can vote early without a reason or excuse. Early voting ballots are cast directly into the voting machine, so you can be confident your vote counts. 

Voting in the June 8, 2021 Democratic Primary starts on Friday, April 23rd at the Registrar’s Office at the Fairfax County Government Center and Saturday, April 24th at the North County Government Center and the Mount Vernon Government Center. Starting Saturday, May 29th, voting will be available at 13 satellite locations. Locations and hours are listed below. Select Saturday voting is available. All Fairfax County voters are eligible to vote early at any location below. Non-Fairfax County voters can check with their local registrar for information about early in-person voting options.

Curbside voting is available during early voting: those 65 and older or with a physical disability may vote from their vehicle.

Did you receive a mailed ballot but want to return it in-person? You can drop your completed ballot at any of these locations, during hours of operation. Drop boxes will be available inside each location and will be attended by an Election Officer at all times.

Map of Early Vote Locations

The map below shows the early vote locations available to all voters in Fairfax County, regardless of district. The districts shown on the map are those of the House of Delegates, one of four positions up for election this year.

Dark blue shaded districts have a House of Delegates primary.

Light blue shaded districts will only have statewide candidates on their ballot.

You do not have to vote at an early vote location within your district to vote in that primary. The Election Officer checking you in will hand you the proper ballot for your district.
