The Braddock District Board of Supervisors race ended with Janet Oleszek beating out opponent Chris Wade by just 42 votes.
Oleszek had 1,955 votes to Wade’s 1,913, according to the Virginia State Board of Election results.
The race, though close, would not qualify for a recount under the state’s election laws. In Virginia, there are no automatic recounts.
Only an apparent losing candidate can ask for a recount, and only if the difference between the apparent winning candidate and that apparent losing candidates is not more than one percent of the total votes cast for those two candidates, according to the Virginia State Board of Election’s website.
