There are three candidates running for three seats. Even though the elections are uncontested, RCC is required to hold the Preference Poll annually regardless of how many candidates run.
If you weren’t able to attend the September 17 Candidate Forum to learn about each candidate’s vision for Reston, you may view it online through Reston Community Television. If you haven’t voted yet, please remember to cast your vote no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30.
