Professor Edward Foley was quoted in a article by The Washington Post regarding the race for Virginia attorney general. As of Wed., Sen. Mark R. Herring (D-Loudoun) led state Sen. Mark D. Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg) by 164 votes out of more than 2.2 million cast.
Electoral boards in each locality checked their numbers and decided whether provisional ballots should count. Statewide, 3,158 provisional ballots were cast, 493 of them in the Fairfax Government Center.
GOP attorney Miller Baker argued that the votes cannot be taken out now, and Foley agreed.
“Usually, once a ballot has been counted and mixed into the pool, you can’t really retract it,” Foley said.
