State Does Not Certify Election Results In 28th District

(Richmond)- The questions in the 28th House District in Stafford and Fredericksburg continue. The State Department of Elections Commissioner said at least 80 voters in Fredericksburg were wrongly assigned to the 88th House District rather than the 28th District. He said more voters could have cast ballots in the wrong race in Stafford County and Fredericksburg. The State Board of Elections made the unusual decision this morning to delay certifying results in the two races for several days while Democrats file lawsuits. In the 88th District, Republican Mark Cole easily won re-election. But in the 28th District race to replace retiring House Speaker Bill Howell, Republican Bob Thomas led Democrat Joshua Cole by 82 votes, according to the results presented to the Board of Elections.
