Early voting for the June primaries has already started. But where do you vote? If you have questions about polling places, here are the answers.

With the latest redistricting, Lunenburg County Registrar Carolyn Parsons is reminding voters to check the Virginia Department of Elections website to verify their polling place as it may have changed.

“Since the redistricting after the last census, there have been changes made to the Lunenburg County district boundaries,” Parsons said in a statement. “The office tried to send out a notice to voters with their new polling place.
