This story has become interminably boring.  From the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star:

The State Board of Elections voted 3–0 to certify the Stafford County supervisor’s 82-vote win over Democrat Joshua Cole in the Nov. 7 election, despite revelations that at least 147 Fredericksburg-area voters cast ballots in the wrong House race.

The board also certified the results of the 88th District race, where some of the problems occurred. Del. Mark Cole, R–Spotsylvania County, won by about 4,100 votes.

After a closed meeting to receive advice from the state Attorney General’s Office, elections board Chairman James Alcorn said members had no legal method to address the situation. But the results can be challenged in court, and Democrats have a lawsuit pending that could eventually lead to a special election.

Have fun with that.
