In Fairfax, it’s Election Day All Over Again


Voters in Fairfax County are headed to the polls on Feb. 3 to elect a new chairman of the County Board of Supervisors. The special election is pitting Democrat Sharon Bulova against Republican Pat Herrity. The chairmanship became vacant when Chairman Gerry Connolly resigned to assume the congressional seat he won in November. The county is the home to one in seven Virginians.

The Washington Post reported that Gov. Tim Kaine is concerned about low voter turnout.

“Special elections bring lower turnout,” Kaine said. “People aren’t naturally conditioned to vote in a chairman’s race in February, so that requires some special attention.”
