Peru's presidential election this weekend is expected to cause traffic in parts of Falls Church, Va. Expatriates who are planning to cast their votes are advised to take public transit. West Falls Church Metro is closest to both voting centers.

Peru arranges for expats in the U.S. to cast their votes at locations around the country, but they're few and far between. Many Peruvians living in the Eastern part of the United States will be heading to George Mason High School and Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School, both on Leesburg Pike in Falls Church.

Sunday's election is a runoff. The first round of voting in April led to traffic jams on city streets.

This time around, expats from this area are being encouraged to use public transit to get there.

The West Falls Church Metro station is within walking distance of the schools. The station's garage is accessible from I-66 and is an option for those who do drive.
