Tomorrow a special election will be held for the position of the Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, in order to fill the position left empty by the departure of Gerry Connolly. Polling stations will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout Feb 3.
The candidates on the ballot are:
Sharon S. Bulova
Carey C. Campbell
Christopher F. DeCarlo
Among the major issues is the county budget, the education system, transportation—including an expansion of the train system—and the environment.
Over 1 million residents will be affected by the election, though officials are predicting a low turnout to the event. Rokey Suleman, Fairfax County’s general registrar, cites fatigue from the presidential election and predicted bad weather as why voter numbers will be low.
