Fairfax chairman seeks separate precinct for GMU

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Fairfax County's top politician wants George Mason University to have its own voting precinct.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova says a precinct on the campus would better serve the school's fast-growing on-campus population. The university does not currently have an on-campus polling location.

At a board meeting Tuesday, the supervisors directed county staff to work with the Fairfax school to determine the feasibility of a George Mason precinct. The county is in the midst of adjusting its precincts as a part of the redistricting required every 10 years.
