Fairfax voters headed to the polls on Tuesday to decide, not just Virginia's statewide races, but also a number of local races and a Fairfax County Public Schools bond referendum.
Voter turnout has been strong and steady in the City of Fairfax, election officers said.
By 12:45 p.m., already nearly one-third of registered voters at the Sherwood Community Center had cast their ballot, said polling place chief Stephanie Hazel, who said there was already a bit of a line waiting at 6 a.m. when the polls opened.
She said everything was running fairly smoothly.
"Most people are able to vote within just a few moments of arriving," she said. "It's been a nice, easy-going day."
Voter traffic at City Hall was also steady, with an average of around 105 voters per hour through most of the day. By noon, around 670 of the 2,697 registered voters had cast their ballots.

FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS BOND REFERENDUM:
On Tuesday's ballot is a $250-million bond referendum to improve Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS).
The 2013 school bond referendum was selected by the FCPS School Board last May. It includes $42 million for new construction, $8.2 million for school expansion, and $276 million for school renovations. Subtracted from that total is $109 million left over from prior bond issues.
FAIRFAX CITY RACES
There are two uncontested Fairfax City races on Tuesday's ballot as well.
Thomas "Tom" Scibilia was elected as the city's new treasurer, with 99.15 percent of votes.
William Page Johnson II was elected as the city's Commissioner of the Revenue, with 98.49 percent of votes.
