The annual preference poll for members of the Board of Governors of Reston Community Center has historically yielded a minimal turnout. Last year voting was desultory at best: 338 ballots were cast. This year the contest aroused enough public interest to bring 1,300 tax-district residents to the polls. The number of candidates in prior years never surpassed six. This year nine candidates entered the preference poll lists to fill three seats. Low voter turnout in the past has resulted in little involuntary turnover of members of the Board of Governors. This year the two governors who sought reelection were both rejected by the voters. If future RCC preference polls continue to be vigorously contested, the effect on RCC management will be nothing short of revolutionary.
