All residents of Small District 5, age 18 or older, are eligible to run for appointment to the board. Candidates must complete a Candidacy Statement in order to have their names placed on the Preference Poll ballot. Candidacy Statements will be available at RCC facilities or online at beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 1. The deadline for candidacy filing is 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 15.

The RCC Board appointments are made by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors after voters have made their preferences known in the annual poll.
