The unofficial results of today’s elections in Harrisonburg, with the State Board of Elections reporting 100 percent of the city precincts, show Ted Byrd and Charlie Chenault as the two winners of the City Council election.
In the west school board district Polly Fravel defeated Scott Baxter.
Voter turn-out in the city was 32 percent.
This post will be updated as more information comes in from the House of Representatives race and the state referendum items.
November 3rd Update: At 8:30 this morning the Virginia State Board of Elections finally reported all precincts for the Sixth District race. In no surprise Bob Goodlatte will return to the House, now a Republican controlled one, for a tenth term. He garnered 76 percent of the vote throughout the district, but only managed to claim 60 percent of the vote in Harrisonburg.
With less than half a percent of precincts still out statewide, in an outcome predicted last night, all three referendum items will be added to the state constitution. Questions 1 and 2 passed by a large margin, while Question 3 concerning an increase in the state’s Revenue Stabilization Fund, squeaked by, passing by only 50,000 votes.
