Fairfax: Fairfax is divided into nine “Magisterial Districts.” Nine of the ten members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors are elected from these individual Magisterial Districts, and the Chairman is elected county-wide. Each Magisterial District consists of between 25 and 30 individual voting precincts.
To find out which Magisterial District you live in, enter your address in the Fairfax County “My Neighborhood” page. Just type your address into the field at the top of the map, and in the left column you’ll be able to scroll down detailed information about your District, elected representatives, local schools and other resources.

Fairfax County Republican Committee: The FCRC has a District Chairman for each of those nine Magisterial Districts. The District Chairs are the leaders of our grassroots organization: their key task is to recruit and train Precinct Captains and volunteers. District Chairs are also responsible for working with their local volunteer teams to organize and implement grassroots activities in support of Republican candidates. They work to maintain a Republican Party presence in their districts throughout the year.
Precincts: The precinct is the neighborhood center for all elections. Volunteering and talking with your neighbors helps get people excited about our candidates and issues – and it encourages them to vote. Usually there’s just one polling location in each precinct, but some polling places serve more than one precinct.
Training: Every year, the Fairfax County Republican Committee recruits precinct captains and trains them on organizing their precincts, using our voter databases, recruiting and managing volunteers, and getting out the vote on Election Day. We help our Precinct Captains with comprehensive ongoing mentoring and support.
