Two New Alexandria Precincts in Place for the June 9 Primary
This spring, the Alexandria City Council approved two precinct changes that will take effect for the June 9 Primary Election. This action was based on recommendations from the Alexandria Electoral Board and affects about 4,500 voters across three City precincts, Durant Center (1605 Cameron St.), Fire Department Headquarters (900 Second St.), and St. James Church (5000 Echols Ave.):
Addition of a new precinct with Charles Houston Recreation Center as the polling location.
A new precinct, Charles Houston Recreation Center (901 Wythe St.), was added in the Old Town area to absorb the population growth near Braddock Metro. The Charles Houston precinct was created from the center of Fire Department Headquarters and Durant Center precincts. This map shows the boundaries for the new Charles Houston precinct.
Hermitage to replace St. James United Methodist Church as a polling location.
The Hermitage (5000 Fairbanks Ave.) will replace St. James as a polling place with no change to precinct boundaries. Voting will take place in the Multipurpose Auditorium on the lower level of the Hermitage. The most direct access to this voting room is from Fillmore Avenue (off of North Beauregard Street).
Residents who are affected by one of these changes were recently mailed an updated voter card and information about their new polling location.
