Here are the election results from the Pages – Prince William County Office of Elections. They posted the unofficial results about a half an hour after the polls closed here: PW Brentsville Special Election Unofficial Results.
Suffice to say there is not much doubt as to who won. Hence Potomac Local posted this story: Lawson wins Brentsville seat, headed to Prince William Board of Supervisors. Since Potomac Local messed up their link to the PW Brentsville Special Election Unofficial Results, I provided my own.
Since I spent the day at the polls passing out sample ballots in support of Jeanine Lawson (at the Limestone Precinct), needless to say I am pleased with the results. Because this was a special election, in less than a year Lawson will have to run for the Brentsville supervisor seat again. Her strong showing in this election should give potential opponents cause to think twice.
As a side note, I would like to mention that our local State Senator, Dick Black, came to the polls and encouraged voters to give Lawson their support (other politicians may have done the same at precincts other than Limestone). Black even got some volunteers to work the polls. Given the awful weather, Black deserves credit for making that extra effort.
