Election Day in Reston: Quick Guide to the Candidates, Issues

Election Day/file photoTuesday is Election Day, and Virginia voters will go to the polls to elect a governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, sheriff and state delegate. Voters in Fairfax County will also vote Yes or No on a $250 million school bond issue.
