Virginia Election Results: Biden, Warner Projected to Win

Results for Virginia Senate and several House seats for the Northern Virginia area will be posted here

NBC Universal, Inc.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Mark Warner are projected to win in Virginia, NBC News says.

Virginia residents also voted in several key races to determine representatives in 11 congressional districts.

The Board of Elections website reflects correct vote totals, the Fairfax County registrar said Wednesday after a county spokesman said late Tuesday that some of the 10th Congressional District Central Absentee Precinct totals initially were entered three times. That error appeared on a county spreadsheet but did not appear on the website, the registrar said. An electoral board member spotted the mistake. 

Biden is still the projected winner in Virginia, NBC News says.

Here are some of the races and ballot questions News4 is watching closely in Virginia:

Incumbent Mark Warner, a Democrat, is projected to win a third Senate term. Warner, also a former governor of Virginia, ran against Republican Daniel Gade, a political newcomer. Gade, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, teaches political science and public policy at American University. He served in Iraq and lost a leg in combat in 2005.

Virginia has not elected a Republican to a statewide office since 2009.

NBC4 aired the first debate between the candidates for a Virginia U.S. Senate seat. Democrat Mark Warner is seeking a third term challenged by Republican Daniel Gade, a decorated Army veteran who lost his leg serving in Iraq. Debate panelist and Northern Virginia Bureau Chief Julie Carey reports.

NBC News is projecting Republican Rob Wittman to win reelection to the seat he has held since 2007. His opponent was Democrat Qasim Rashid, who calls himself an immigrant and a proud American Muslim. Rashid has a law degree from the University of Richmond and has written books and spoken about religious freedom.

Republican Bob Good declared victory and Democrat Dr. Cameron Webb conceded, News4's Julie Carey reported.

This reliably Republican congressional district in Virginia was considered a toss-up this year. Good defeated the incumbent, first-term Rep. Denver Riggleman, in a GOP convention. His opponent works at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.

A Democrat hasn't won Virginia's 5th District since 2008. Trump won it by 11 percentage points in 2016. This year, Webb set records for fundraising, pulling in four times as much money as Good.

Northern Virginia Bureau Chief Julie Carey reports on Virginia's 5th District Congressional race, a usually Republican district now considered a toss-up.

Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former CIA officer, beat a Republican incumbent in 2018 to become one of three Democratic women to flip House seats in Virginia. Her Republican opponent this time is Nick Freitas, who has been a member of the Virginia House of Delegates since 2015. Freitas, a U.S. Army veteran, is from the Culpeper area.

NBC News projects that Democrat Don Beyer has been reelected for a fourth term. His opponent was Republican opponent Jeff Jordan, a U.S. Army veteran who now works as a contractor for the Department of Defense. 

Democrat Jennifer Wexton is projected to win a second term, according to NBC News. She ran against Republican Aliscia Andrews, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

Democrat Gerry Connolly is projected to win a seventh term, according to NBC News. His opponent was Republican Manga Anantatmula, a first-generation immigrant from India.

As polls open across the country, President Donald Trump has a planned stop in Virginia before heading back the White House. Joe Biden is scheduled to visit Pennsylvania before returning to Delaware.

Ballot Initiatives

Question 1

Virginians voted “yes” on the state’s first ballot initiative, which will establish a bipartisan redistricting commission, NBC News projects.

The new commission, composed of eight members of the General Assembly and eight citizens, will be able to draw new lines for Virginia's congressional and state legislative districts.

The full General Assembly will proceed to vote on the districting lines, but not be allowed to change them. If the General Assembly and the redistricting commission fail to agree on redistricting lines, the Supreme Court of Virginia will draw the lines.

This initiative would establish a new commission, composed of eight members of the General Assembly and eight citizens, that would draw new lines for Virginia's congressional and state legislative districts.

Question 2

Virginians voted in favor of this initiative to exempt state and local property taxes for one motor vehicle for veterans who are 100% disabled. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs is in charge of determining a veteran's level of disability.
