With the presidential election not yet determined at the national level Tuesday night, Accomack voters chose Donald Trump over Joe Biden, 8,822 votes to 6,824 votes, according to unofficial results.
The election night results include the central absentee precinct, but some absentee ballots were still being tallied Wednesday. Mailed ballots postmarked by Election Day are to be counted if received by noon Friday statewide, meaning election night results are incomplete and unofficial. Results will be certified on November 16, according to the Virginia State Board of Elections.
The Associated Press called the Senate race early Tuesday evening for incumbent Mark Warner, a Democrat.
In Accomack County, 7,182 votes were cast for Warner, compared to 8,527 for Republican challenger Daniel Gade.
Accomack voters cast 6,980 ballots for incumbent Democrat Elaine Luria for the House of Representatives 2nd District seat, compared to 8,437 for former Congressman and Republican Scott Taylor.

Five towns in Accomack County held elections for mayor and six town council members Nov. 3. Parksley held a special election to fill the council seat vacated when Frank Russell became mayor in May.

Absentee ballots that were mailed in and received by Election Day were to be counted on Election Day, according to Voter Registrar Patricia White. Additionally, the machine into which early in-person voters scanned their ballots in the registrar’s office was closed and the votes tallied Tuesday.

Additionally, mailed ballots postmarked by Election Day are to be counted if received by noon Friday statewide, meaning election night results are incomplete and unofficial. Results will be certified Nov. 16, according to the State Board of Elections.
