Fenwick Picks Up 3 Votes – 2nd Place Finisher Won’t Be Finalized Until Friday

Fenwick Picks Up 3 Votes – 2nd Place Finisher Won’t Be Finalized Until Friday

The race for the Democratic nomination for City Council is still up in the air, but it appears Bob Fenwick has an edge. Fenwick and Wes Bellamy tied for second place with 1088 votes apiece in Tuesday’s Democratic primary. The Charlottesville Electoral Board spent Wednesday morning going over provisional ballots. They found six provisional ballots were certified, and Fenwick picked up three votes from those while Bellamy had none. However, there are three or four outstanding ballots where those who cast them need to present an ID by Friday. The Democratic ticket will be filled by Kristin Szakos, who got the most votes Tuesday, and the winner between Fenwick and Bellamy. They’ll face Republicans Mike Farruggio and Buddy Weber on the November general election ballot.
