Board Election

Board Election

Overview

Each spring, Reston Association members are given the opportunity to elect three new individuals to the Board of Directors. If one or more directors from the nine-member board resign before the end of their three-year term, additional seats with shorter terms could be open in any given election. Members running for a seat in a specific district must reside within that district. The election process is overseen by the Elections Committee and the balloting is done by an independent firm. Results of the election are announced at the Annual Members' Meeting in April. 

2019 Candidates

The Reston Association Elections Committee has certified five candidates to run for the five open seats on Board of Directors this year. Voting will take place from March 4 through April 1. Although this year's five seats are uncontested, a quorum of 10 percent of eligible voters needs to be reached to make the election results official. Association members will receive ballots before the voting period begins and are encouraged to vote. A candidates' forum will be held on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at RA headquarters, 12001 Sunrise Valley Drive. Click here to watch it live on YouTube. The following candidates will be running this year:
