Absentee results in Spotsylvania

The only votes still in question are coming from Henrico County. 

Henrico reported results early Wednesday morning, however, there remains some confusion about how many ballots are left to be tallied. The Virginia Public Access Project reports that roughly 21,000 votes are potentially un-reported. “Henrico reported it had received 79,401 AB ballots in CD7. But CAP results totaled only 58,285 – a difference of 21,116.”

Henrico absentee totals as of Wednesday morning

Lizzie Drucker-Basch, the chairwoman for the Henrico County Democratic Party tweeted that everything is being monitored. “The machines will be rerun this afternoon,” said Drucker-Basch in a tweet. “[Henrico County’s] registrar is unaware of ‘missing votes.’ There are still absentee votes to be counted. I warn against holding to a number. Democrats watching the whole thing. It will get sorted out shortly. There’s nothing ‘afoot.’ Give it time.”

The Henrico County Democratic Party gave another update on Wednesday evening. “Issue in Henrico resolved. A memory stick was filtered out of absentee vote totals. Expect updated central absentee information tonight.”

We will continue to update you when we have more information.
