Two precincts in Reston could be in for some big changes in the next general election.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is considering a motion tomorrow (Tuesday) to relocate and rename North Point #1 and North Point #2 precincts.
The change comes after St. Thomas à Becket Catholic Church, the current site of both precincts at 1421 Wiehle Avenue, told the Office of Elections that it could not “logistically accommodate voting for both precincts,” according to a staff memo.
The first precinct would be moved to Aldrin Elementary School at 11375 Center Harbor Road and renamed North Point, while the second precinct would continue to vote at the church. To avoid confusion, the precinct will be renamed Piney Run.
The county plans to hold a public hearing on Tuesday, June 7 at 4 p.m.
If approved, the change would go into effect starting with the general and special elections on Nov. 8. The primary election on June 21 would not be affected in an effort to avoid any “possible confusion about the status of precincts and polling places,” county staff said.
Other precincts in Fairfax County are also slated for changes:
- A Lorton precinct that has been located at Lorton Station Elementary School would move back to Lorton Community Center, which is expected to reopen in August after an expansion
- Mosby Woods #1 and #2 would be renamed to reflect the new name of Mosaic Elementary School
- The Fairfax Station precinct could be moved to Burke Centre Library, since its current site at St. Peter’s in the Woods Church is being renovated
North Point #1 was established in May 1988, with boundaries adjusted several times. The precinct was officially divided into North Point #1 and North Point #2 in March.
The county approved changes to more than half its voting precincts last month in response to last year’s redistricting process, which redrew federal and state electoral districts in order to balance constitutents based the latest Census data.
