Con­trol of House re­mains un­de­cided

RICHMOND — Pro­vi­sional bal­lot counts have not changed the stand­ings in two House of Del­e­gates races that could de­ter­mine con­trol of the cham­ber. Ef­forts are still un­der­way in a third.

Lo­cal elec­toral boards met Mon­day to count pro­vi­sional bal­lots, which vot­ers cast when they ar­rive with­out a photo ID. They have to pro­vide a copy later.

In the 28th District race be­tween Repub­li­can in­cum­bent Bob Thomas and Demo­crat Joshua Cole, the Stafford County elec­toral board de­layed a de­ci­sion un­til Tues­day. A dis­pute over 55 ab­sen­tee bal­lots is also un­set­tled.

In the 94th District in New­port News and in North­ern Vir­ginia’s 40th, the GOP in­cum­bents re­mained ahead.

Democrats have picked up 15 seats so far. If they flipped one more, the cham­ber would be tied.
