I've captured the current result by locality (county and independent city) so we can see where the changes are occuring.

On Wednesday there was a regular precinct out for Richmond city and James City county.  They are now included, but with a double entry (one still showing 0 votes, and one with the actual vote totals).  These two together were a +159 for Deeds.

The republican has a 980 vote lead in the AG race.

Boy that shrank from this morning.  Any link to these results?  And did they count all the provisional ballotts, yet?
 
This is almost like the 2004 Washington state Governors race, but almost in reverse.     

Except for this one won't be stolen.

Thank you for that jimrtex.  I know that might not have been necessarily easy for you to have read or reported on.

Boy this is close.  I'm glad Deeds is in the lead like I thought he would be. 

Now I am glad I didn't get that job and move to Virginia, earlier this fall.   These results and the continuing not sure about the outcome  (plus how close all three races, were throughout the fall) plus I'm sure McDonnell calling for a recount  -- I'm sure would have made me either piss my pants all over the place or made it where I couldn't sleep at night.

But with Deeds ahead, now, but 159 votes.  (I did get it right that one of the precincts needing to be counted was in the city of Richmond, I still know much of my Virginia geography, don't I?  Just a question for myself, sometimes I amaze myself, I don't know why, I just do).   Wondering about the provisional ballotts though?   And of course now it will be McDonnell who will probably call for a recount, and we will have to see if Deeds lead holds.  Can someone remind me when the Attorney General, as well the Governor and Lt. Governor, on what date the AG is inaugurated in Virginia?  I'm wondering if there will be an AG inaugurated on this date?   Again shades of the Washington state Governor elections from 2004.

Is there some unwritten law that requires there to be an insanely close election every U.S electoral year? Tongue Grin

Correction.  Margin should be 619 rather than 579

Between 9:42 PM Thursday and 4:32 PM Friday the updates were:

Alexandria city
+1 Write In

Richmond city
+187 McDonnell
+472 Deeds
+4 Write-in

Margin is now 619

I don't know where the votes were from.  All precincts are shown as reporting, and Absentee votes are listed as two separate precincts.  Provisionals?

I hate to be anal about this, but it's McDonnell, not McDowell.

Update to Saturday  9:17 AM

Margin is now 513

139 net additional votes reported from Norfolk city.

McDonnell  +19
Deeds      +126
Write-in        -6

McDonnell over Deeds by 513 (0.026%)

The State Board of Elections certifies the state results on November 28, after which a candidate has 10 days to request a recount (Deeds has already indicated that he will seek a recount).

It appears that most larger jurisdictions use some sort of DRE (direct recording electronic) so that there aren't ballots to be recounted.   Notable exceptions are Virginia Beach city which uses a punch card system that allows voter screening at the polling place for overvotes/undervotes, and Loudon county which uses mark sense ballots.

So, what's your point?

This is just become a large thread because of the fact that this year's Virginia Attorney General's race has gone into huge overtime.

Update to Saturday  6:57 PM

Margin is now 410

Another 178 votes reported from Norfolk city.

McDonnell  +33
Deeds      +136
Write-in        +9

McDonnell over Deeds by 410 (0.021%)

The two bunches from Norfolk were 85% Deeds, vs. 61% overall.  I still don't know where the votes are trickling in from.  The Fairfax County web site indicates a total of 48 provisional votes among 262 thousand votes (Fairfax County is by far the largest jurisdiction in the state, with about 5 times the Richmond vote and 6 times the Norfolk vote.  If the Norfolk additions were from provisionals, the provisional rate would be roughly 40 times that of Fairfax County.
