We observed the field of Swift GRB 210619B (D'Avanzo et al. GCN 30261; Jelinek et al. GCN 30263; Lipunov et al. GCN 30259; Zhao et al. GCN 30261; Kong et al. GCN 30265; Axelsson et al. GCN 30270; de Ugarte Postigo et al. GCN 30272; Zheng et al. GCN 30273; Blazek et al. GCN 30274; Kann et al. GCN 30275; Svinkin et al. GCN 30276; Xin et al. GCN 30277; Perley et al. GCN 30271 ) with the 2.0m Liverpool Telescope (LT), La Palma on 2021 June 20 starting at 00:21:14.141 UT for a period of 2 hours using the MOPTOP optical imaging polarimeter in the r� band.  Data was calibrated with respect to nearby APASS secondary standard stars.

We confirm the optical counterpart reported by Swift UVOT (GCN 30261).

At T=1318 seconds after the BAT trigger time, we measure r� = 16.1 mag.  Detailed analysis is ongoing.
