Only in Reston....

Are certain elections not elections. They're "preference polls."

The preference poll is so named because it does not function as an actual election. As a Fairfax County facility, the Hunter Mill District board member, currently Supervisor Cathy Hudgins (D), appoints the Board of Governors.

RCC Director of Communications Bebe Nguyen said the supervisor has always appointed the candidates chosen by the preference poll, which allows the community to have a say in the nominations.

"It's a way for the community to express their preference," she said.
