Election Roundup: Local Races to Follow on Election Day Next Week

The election is less than one week away for Fairfax County voters. 

While Democrat Walter Alcorn won the primary seat for Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins, who is retiring, there are still plenty of local races to follow.

The makeup of the Fairfax County School Board is expected to change considerably, with nine contested seats. Six district seats and the chair are contested on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. 

Two candidates are running for the seat of Pat Hynes, who currently holds the Hunter Mill District seat on the school board. Earlier this year, Hynes said she would not seek reelection after serving on the 12-member board for the last seven years.

Reston Now will be covering the race for the chair of the Board of Supervisors, the Commonwealth’s Attorney, the at-large seat for the school board, and the Hunter Mill District Seat for the school board.

Residents will also vote on a number of bond referendums for schools, including planning funds for a new “Silver Line” elementary school.

Election returns will be posted by the Virginia Department of Elections online. Stay tuned for more information and coverage next week.
