By Carol Vaughn —
Accomack County final results for the Nov. 3 election include several winners of town offices determined by write-in vote.
The official results came after the electoral board met.
In Bloxom, Thomas W. Beasley will be mayor after receiving the most write-in votes.
Council members in several towns also were determined by write-in vote.
The state board of elections Monday delayed certification of election results statewide until later in the week to give additional time to the Richmond voter registrar’s office, which has had a COVID-19 outbreak, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Officials said they have received certifications from the other 132 localities in the state. The state board of elections certified the results Wednesday.
