Polls closed at 7 pm in Herndon and Leesburg, results in the latter are coming in. We will update Herndon and Leesburg election results throughout the evening.

With 92% of votes counted Ken Reid appears to be the top vote getter for Leesburg Town Council. Good news! Congratulations, Ken!

More Virginia election results to come ….

UPDATE: The polls closed 2 hours and 15 minutes ago and still no Herndon election results, while Vienna results were reported a half hour ago. Annoying.

UPDATE II: Ken Reid is now listed as 3rd for Leesburg Town Council with 100% of the vote recorded. Dicier than I reported earlier, although good news in a pretty Democrat area. Not sure about absentee and provisional ballots, but I hope this means Ken is back on the Council.

UPDATE III: 9:30 pm, polls closed 2 and a half hours ago in Herndon and still no SBE results. Must be because there are so many Town Council candidates and probably a really low turnout. it is a single voting precinct but they are probably checking each machine twice or more. Stay tuned …

UPDATE IV: The SBE page is down, which tells me it is being updated …. results for Herndon soon?

UPDATE V: A commenter just reported the following as Herndon Town Council election results:

Connie Haines Hutchinson
Lisa C. Merkel
Sheila A. Olem
Jasbinder Singh
William B. “Bill” Tirrell, Sr.
Grace H. Wolf

Still no SBE confirmation, but if the above holds true … Connie and Bill Tirrell are great for the town, but otherwise, too bad for Herndon. I will be interested in seeing the final turnout results.

UPDATE VI: Final SBE results confirm the above. Herndon will be interesting to watch over the next two years.

Herndon Voters:

Please click here for the 2010 Herndon Sample Ballot which you can use as a guide at the polls tomorrow.

Voting takes place Tuesday, May 4, at the Herndon Community Center from 6 am – 7 pm. Click here for a map to the Community Center.

As last time there is a clear cut group of candidates who will make a strong Town Council.

This includes existing council members Connie Hutchinson, David Kirby, Bill Tirrell, and Charlie Waddell, along with candidates Phil Jones and Carl Silvertsen. Herndon’s outstanding Mayor Steve DeBenedittis is running unopposed.

An opposition group representing the left-liberal values of the previous (pre-2006) town council has been trying for the past two years to create public interest for their slate but was not even able to come up with a candidate for mayor.

Herndon has led the state as a model of good local government for the past 4 years; by voting for the candidates listed above the residents of Herndon can ensure this fortunate state of affairs continues.
