Unofficial Results: Leesburg Votes 2012

Keep updated with Tuesday's election results.

Update 1:15 a.m., Wednesday: President Barack Obama has won a second term and Democrats who were gathered at Palio Ristorante Italiano, in Leesburg, were more than happy with the results.

"I saw him when he came to Loudoun County and he seems like a really, really nice guy," said local voter, Nina, who said healthcare and women's rights played an important role in her decision on who to vote for. "He really cares about people and I like the fact that he was brought up in a humble background."

The announcement regarding Obama's win was aired live on CNN at 11:18 p.m. Voters cheered, some cried. Romney conceded shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday prior to Obama's victory speech after 1:30 a.m.

Update 6 p.m.: With less than an hour left to vote in the 2012 election, lines are expected to grow until the polls close at 7 p.m.

Chief Election Officer Philip Rusciolelli said that 1,753 people have already voted out of 2,993 who are located within the 505 – Cool Spring precinct. That number is expected to grow, he said, as people leave work for  the day.

Outside, a handful of Leesburg Town Council candidates greeted voters who were making their way into Cool Spring Elementary School. Among them, was Katie Hammler, Dwight Dopilka, Tom Dunn and David Butler. Mayoral candidate Kristen C. Umstattd spent the entire day waving to everyone who either pulled in or passed by the school.

“I love it. The people down here are so nice. We almost always get wave backs and big smiles. I’m just so grateful to them and this has been tremendous fun,” Umstattd said.

Earlier in the day, voter turnout was a litte less in the 506 - Brandon Park precinct. 

"From 6 to 7 a.m. it was the busiest time so far. Since then it has been steady, but not overwhelming," said Chief Election Officer Dave Labuha. There had been 677 voters who stopped by Loudoun County High School as of 12:15 p.m.

Down the road, at C.S. Monroe Technology Center, 503 - Dry Mill precinct, mid-day voting also appeared to be slow but steady. Chief Election Officer Janice Webb said they had 700 voters by 12:45 p.m.

“People were waiting in line when we first opened at 6 a.m.," Webb said. "We had about 100 people in the first half hour. Since then it has been steady."

Voters throughout the day seemed to equal each other out when it came to who they were voting for.

Update 3:15 p.m.: Voter turnout continues to remain strong in Leesburg, according to local officials. Earlier today, Town Council candidates Tom Dunn, S. Ann Robinson and Jim Sisley were greeting voters at Ida Lee, 501- West Leesburg.

“Obviously, as the day goes on it’s going to keep picking up," Dunn said. "I think the turnout is great and everybody is in a good mood.”

Chief Election Officer Robet Merhaut said that there had been 1,048 voters as of 11:30 a.m. Usually, the precinct is very strong, he said, with a turnout near 80 to 85 percent.

“We have over 400 that have done absentee ballots so we’re at almost 1500 and we have 2200 voters in this precinct,” Merhaut said. “So that’s pretty strong and we still have a good amount of the day left.”

Update 12:50 p.m.: Lines have remained long, but steady, as voters continue to head to the polls today. Around 1,000 voters had already selected their candidates at Frances Hazel Reid Elementary School, 502-East Leesburg precinct, around 10:30 a.m.

Chief Election Officer Richard Claar said the average wait time had been about 10 to 15 minutes long. He expects a larger crowd to arrive later this afternoon as the work day comes to an end. He encouraged everyone to vote sooner than later.
