Vienna Election Cliffhanger

Sandhya Somashekhar

Incumbent George Lovelace and challenger Laurie DiRocco won two of the three seats up in today's Vienna town election, according to unofficial results from the Fairfax County Office of Elections.

One vote separates the third and fourth place candidates, incumbent Dan Dellinger and and challenger Howard Springsteen. Springsteen is ahead with 793 votes, but there was one provisional ballot cast, and Fairfax County officials will not determine its validity until tomorrow under Virginia law.

If it's a tie, the Board of Elections will flip a coin, draw a name out of a hat or otherwise determine the winner. Really.

700 some odd votes?
Student government candidates win more votes.

A guy named Springsteen can't get 800 votes?

Flip a coin?
This speaks to the uselessness of school boards and elected education officials.

Start by not hiring teachers off Greg's list.

Virginia....who ever designed that street grid was on acid.
From the Occoquan to the mixing bowl.
