SUNDAY 6/5: Heavy Traffic Expected in Falls Church
Thousands Expected to Attend Peruvian Election
Two Falls Church City schools will be the polling place on Sunday, June 5, for Peruvians voting in their home country’s presidential election. Thousands of people are expected, potentially creating heavy foot and vehicular traffic in the area.
George Mason High School, 7124 Leesburg Pike, and Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School, 7130 Leesburg Pike, are being rented from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the election. Falls Church City Police and Fairfax County Police, with assistance from the Virginia Department of Transportation and Metro, are coordinating plans for keeping traffic moving, including having extra personnel on site. Visitors to the polling places have been encouraged to use public transit. Drivers to the City are advised that parking in shopping center parking lots are for customers only and cars may be towed if parked illegally.
