On election night the State Board of Elections reported that they had 26,000 absentee ballots yet to tabulate in the 11th District, even though their website showed they had tabulated the absentee precincts. Later, they said they had counted all 26,000 ballots in this tweet:
Now official: In Virginia’s 11th district race the 26,000 outstanding absentee ballots HAVE BEEN COUNTED & ARE INCLUDED IN THE RESULTS posted on the sbe website #vaelections
The SBE tallies for absentee ballots in the three localities in the 11th District total 15,825 votes.
So just where did the other 10,175 votes go?
