Update on Virginia Delegates

Though GOP leadership came out this morning claiming victory in the 4 close vote seats, we're likely looking at recounts before a final determination is made. None of these races have been conceded to date.

Again from Ballotpedia:

Election updates

November 9, 11:00 AM ET: According to Virginia law, recounts can take place if the official result of a race shows a difference of one percent or less between two candidates.[2] Official results will be determined by the State Board of Elections (SBE) later in November. Republicans still lead all four races that have not been called or conceded. The apparent loser of a race must ask the SBE for a recount.

November 8, 5:56 PM ET: Virginia House Republican leader says his party won a 51-49 majority in the chamber. Republican Speaker-designee Kirk Cox said the November 8 vote canvass showed that Republican candidates won seats in District 40 and District 94, meaning his party would retain control of the chamber.[3][4]

2. Vote totals as of noon and some additional information

District 027 D is down 124 votes or 0.43%

District 028 D is down 84 votes or 0.35%

District 040 D is down 115 votes or 0.38%

District 094 D is down 13 votes or 0.06%

11/14/17 is the deadline for canvasing, so the counts might change.
11/20/17 is when the board meets to certify the election.

Recounts can be requested if the difference is not more than 1% and requests are made after certification of the results.

I see no provisional ballots counted in the data and have been unable to find out how many there might be. Noon Monday is the deadline for voters to get their provisional ballots sorted out.

Absentee ballots appear to have been counted.

My information is from the Virginia Department of Elections website.

3. No concessions

Fight every last ballot, fight for every last voter. Let's make 100% sure we have an accurate count.

6. We can't seem to catch a break on razor outcomes

 

Dating to Gore and with rare exceptions.

0-4 here would be a darn shame, given the stakes and really only needing 1-3. I know we had reported leads in some of them fairly late in the count.
