  • STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS MEETING POSTPONED

    RICHMOND, VA – Virginia State Board of Elections Chairman James Alcorn released the
    following statement:

    “After receiving notice of the pending litigation concerning the HD94 election, we have decided to postpone tomorrow’s planned drawing. While our planned drawing for tomorrow was in full compliance with the Code of Virginia, neutral election administrators should not be choosing election winners – or influencing the next Speaker of the House. Drawing names is an action of last resort. Any substantive concerns regarding the election or recount should be resolved before a random drawing is conducted. This will best serve the voters of HD94 and the rest of the Commonwealth.”
