Mark Herring, left, is the Democratic candidate for the AG office, opposed by Mark Obenshain, right.
Virginia attorney general's race remains unresolved, but recent findings have done nothing but make the race closer.
The Fairfax County Electoral Board completed a canvass of absentee votes
in one of its districts, and Democratic state Sen. Mark Herring gained
more than twice as many votes as Republican state Sen. Mark Obsenshain.
The canvass puts Herring's vote total in District 8 at 5,137 votes to
Obenshain's 2,039 votes.
Statewide, the Board of Elections still shows Obenshain with a slight
edge over Herring out of 2.2 million ballots cast. Election officials
blame tabulating errors for the initial undercount, including problems with a broken optical scanner.
Meanwhile, more than 3,000 provisional, or contested votes, still remain to be counted. Those won't be certified by local registrars until Tuesday.
