Recount Dates Set In Attorney General Race

The recount in the attorney general contest has been scheduled for December 17th and 18th. The dates were set at a hearing Wednesday. Fairfax County will begin its recount on the 17th with the rest of the state localities joining in the next day. The additional time was given to Fairfax County because of its population and large number of voting machines. Once localities complete the recount, a three-judge recount court will convene to settle any challenged ballots.
