More from WaPo:

As of noon Wednesday, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, state Sen. Mark D. Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg) was clinging to a 481-vote lead over state Sen. Mark Herring (D-Loudoun), with 2.2 million ballots cast, according to unofficial figures from the Virginia State Board of Elections.

Local election boards on Wednesday will begin examining “provisional” ballots — cast by voters who did not present legally acceptable ID or who may have come to the wrong polling place Tuesday. The boards must finish certifying their counts by Nov. 12.

The State Board of Elections is scheduled to certify the entire count Nov. 25. Only then can the trailing candidate ask for a recount, according to board spokeswoman Nikki Sheridan.

The number will continue to change as provisional ballots are counted, but it looks like the vote difference should still fall within the margin required to put a recount into motion.
