The Peruvian presidential election this weekend could produce traffic gridlock in the northern Virginia city of Falls Church.
Peruvian expats living in the U.S. can cast ballots in the runoff election Sunday at the city's high school on Leesburg Pike. Thousands are expected because Falls Church will draw voters from several mid-Atlantic states.
The first round of voting in April, which produced a runoff between leftist military man Ollanta Humala and Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of jailed former President Alberto Fujimori, caused huge traffic jams on city streets.
Voters are encouraged to use public transit. The West Falls Church Metro station is a short walk from the school. Those who drive are encouraged to park at the station's garage, which is accessible from I-66.
