21 December, 2017, 01:29 | Author: Kim Reid
This is a historic victory for the Democrats, who having flipped the seat to now share a 50-50 tie with the Republicans for control of the Virginia House of Delegates.
Voters in Newport News proved once again today that every vote counts. The voter had selected the Republican candidate at all other levels, but seemed to accidentally fill in two bubbles in the House of Delegates race. Attorneys for Yancey said the campaign believes one ballot meant for him was not counted.
After a recount Tuesday had Democrat Shelly Simonds declaring victory by a margin of one vote over Republican Del.
Regardless of how this plays out, the outcome is a stunning turnabout from the almost 2-1 majority (66 seats out of 100) that Republicans had enjoyed before November 7.
The official wrote in a letter submitted to the court that he was "confused" about election board guidelines when he agreed to leave the vote uncounted.
Election officials in Newport News said Tuesday that Shelly Simonds beat incumbent Republican Del. The recount still has to be certified by a three-judge panel, which will likely happen on Wednesday. Simonds was trailing Republican David Yancey by 10 votes just after the election.
Control of the state House will likely be determined by the victor of the race.
There will be a recount Wednesday in the 68th District, which includes parts of Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield.
Terry McAuliffe says the one-vote margin that appears to have ended GOP rule in the state House is a vivid reminder of the power of a single vote. But that process seemed less likely to be of effect, given that Democrat Dawn Adams was 336 votes ahead of Republican incumbent Del.
Democrat Shelly Simonds emerged from the recount as the apparent victor in the 94th District of the House of Delegates, seizing the seat from Republican incumbent David Yancey.
The official, Kenneth Mallory, wrote that the ballot had both candidates' names bubbled in for the 94th District race. It's one of four recounts that were scheduled following extremely close House races this year.
The statement continued, "The State Board of Elections will publicly meet to make a determination by drawing lots, after which the loser may request an additional recount". The 94th District had by far the slimmest vote difference and the biggest chance of flipping. It is notable, too, that two years ago, when Simonds and Yancey also competed for the 94 District seat, Yancey prevailed by more than 15 percentage points, a stark illustration of the shift required to move the House from two-thirds Republican to an even split.
