Virginia State Board Of Elections To Certify Results

By Natalie Neumann

The Republican sweep in Virginia is about to become official. The State Board of Elections meets this afternoon to certify the results from this year's election.

Today's general election certification will lack the drama of 2005. That's when the election for attorney general was the closest in modern Virginia history. This year all three statewide Republican candidates won handily.

There is one close race this time, but on a more local scale. In a House of Delegates race in Virginia Beach, Republican Ron Villanueva holds an unofficial 14-vote edge over Democratic incumbent Bobby Matheison. That's close enough for a taxpayer-financed recount.
