Yesterday, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved creating 14 voter satellite offices.
The voter satellite offices will serve absentee in-person voters.
“The advent of no-excuse absentee voting [in Virginia] for the November 2020 Presidential Election is expected to significantly increase the number of voters choosing to cast absentee ballots in person,” according to county staff.
County staff noted that the expected voter turnout for the upcoming presidential election is why they suggest an increased number of voter satellite offices, adding that the county had nine locations for the 2016 presidential election.
The Reston-area voter satellite offices will include:
- Great Falls Library (9830 Georgetown Pike)
- Herndon Fortnightly Library (768 Center Street)
- North County Governmental Center (1801 Cameron Glen Drive)
The voter satellite offices will be ready for the General Election on Nov. 3 and will be open from Oct. 14-31, according to county documents.
The locations would be open from 1-7 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturdays.
