DiRocco led all candidates with 806 votes. Sienicki and Springsteen followed with 710 and 708, respectively; Thomas earned 440 votes, according to early returns released by the Fairfax County Office of Elections.

The council members will begin their new terms July 1.

Despite the rain, voter turnout was the highest of any town election since 2009, according to data from the Town of Vienna: 8.9 percent of the town's 11,084 registered voters — or 989 people — cast ballots.

Another 28 people voted absentee, bringing the total turnout to 9.2 percent, according to the county.

Last year, just in last year's elections, about 4.97 percent of Vienna's 11,218 active registered voters cast ballots.

Patch will update this story with more information from the candidates.
