Hamilton, Round Hill Voters Cast Ballots Tuesday

Voters in the towns of Hamilton and Round Hill who did not submit absentee ballots in this year’s municipal elections are encouraged to cast their votes at the polls tomorrow.

The May 19 elections in Hamilton will see four candidates vie for three spots on the Town Council. Incumbent Councilman Kenneth Wine is seeking re-election, while newcomers Elizabeth Gaucher and Sofia Kesari seek election to the council for a first time. Former mayor Greg Wilmoth also is seeking election to the council for the first time since his mayoral term ended in 2014. If Kesari wins one of the three spots at the meeting table, she’ll become Loudoun’s youngest council member, at age 20, while replacing the county’s longest-serving council member—John Unger, who has served since 1984. The winning three candidates will serve on the council until June 2024.

Incumbent Councilwoman Catherine Salter also is running for a spot on the Town Council in a special election for a term that will end in June 2022. She is unopposed.
