Here Are the Candidates Running in Fairfax County Races

The election is one week away for Fairfax County voters — and several seats are contested on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and School Board.

Eight of the nine district seats on the school board are contested, while six district seats and the chair are contested for the Board of Supervisors.

While many are incumbents — like John Foust, Penny Gross and Pat Herrity on the Board of Supervisors — some new faces are also vying for seats due to officials retiring, like Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins and Providence District Supervisor Linda Smyth.

Here are the candidates (listed alphabetically by last name) running in the races Tysons Reporter will be reporting on next week:

Chairman of Board of Supervisors

Providence District Supervisor

Dranesville District Supervisor

Commonwealth’s Attorney

Fairfax County School Board — Providence District Seat

Fairfax County School Board — Dranesville District Seat

Fairfax County School Board — At-Large Seats (voters choose three)

In total, 10 locations will offer in-person absentee voting until Saturday, Nov. 2, at 5 p.m.

Voters can find their polling locations with the My Neighborhood Map or through the portal on the Virginia Department of Elections website. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Check back on Wednesday and Thursday this week for Q&As with the Providence and Dranesville District candidates for the Board of Supervisors.

The election is next Tuesday, Nov. 5.
