VPAP update on certifying results of U.S. Senate race

By Lynn R. Mitchell

VPAP has the latest information about certifying the results from Virginia’s U.S. Senate race:

Step 1: Electoral boards in every county and city have until 5 p.m. today to meet and begin to ascertain yesterday’s results. They have until next Tuesday to certify the results and submit their final numbers to the State Board of Elections

Step 2: Voters who cast provisional ballots have until noon on Friday to deliver a copy of their photo identification to their local electoral board in order for their vote to be counted.

Step 3: The State Board of Elections will meet on Monday, November 24 to certify the results, at which point an official winner will be declared.
Step 4: Virginia has no automatic recounts. But if the race is within 1%, Gillespie has 10 days to request a recount. If the margin is less than 0.5%, then the localities are responsible for paying for the recount. Otherwise, Gillespie’s campaign must pay $10 per precinct — about $25,000.
