RCC Board Candidates Still Need Your Votes

RCC logoThis is the last week of voting in the 2016 Preference Poll for the Reston Community Center Board of Governors.

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.

Read more about the three candidates, Beverly Cosham, Michelle Moyer and Paul Thomas, on this previous Reston Now post and on RCC’s website.

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.

Write-in voting is not counted. A ballot and instructions for online, mail, or walk-in voting have been mailed to all Small District 5 residential and commercial addresses. Residents of Small District 5 may use the unique USERID and PIN found on their ballot to vote online, in person or by mail:

Online: Visit www.restoncommunitycenter.com and click on the VOTE NOW button in order to enter your unique household credentials and gain access to online voting. Online voting will be available through Friday, September 30 at 5 p.m.

In Person: Bring your ballot to RCC Hunters Woods or RCC Lake Anne and deposit it in a ballot box; do not leave it in RCC lobbies or on countertops. The boxes will be in the lobbies from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the voting period. Ballots will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30.

By Mail: Residents may use the return envelope provided with the ballot to cast a vote by mail. Postage required. Mailed ballots must be received by Thursday, Sept. 29 at 5 p.m. Please note the earlier deadline for mailed ballots and allow time for delivery by the deadline.

Residents or business representatives who did not receive a ballot may obtain a provisional ballot by visiting Customer Service at RCC Hunters Woods or RCC Lake Anne. Photo ID is required for address confirmation; business representatives will need to show a business card or additional proof of eligibility. Provisional ballots may be cast in person or by mail or may be used to vote online. Only one ballot per household or business will be tabulated.

    The absence of votes is clearly a vote of “NO CONFIDENCE”. They all should quit.

  • Rational Reston

    Since I could not cast a blank ballot, I have not voted. None of the three candidates offer anything new or beneficial, just the same old RCC Board Types.

  • John Higgins

    If I had to guess – and I really don’t – it would be that few people take the effort to cast ballots in totally uncontested polls. Perhaps more so when the poll is not to elect, but to serve as the community’s preference when our supervisor asks the county board to appoint new governors.

    That said, I returned my ballot, with fewer than three check marks as an expression of my preferences. As meaningless as it might be, this is the only voice we have in who guides this organization. I hope readers will reconsider an inclination to abstain.

    I cannot with clear conscience vote for anyone until the code of the bad apple has been removed

    Reminds me of the old style Soviet elections
