Voting precincts around Virginia have counted their ballots, and the unofficial results are in.

As of 9:45 p.m., all ballots in the Historic Triangle except absentee had been counted and reported to the Virginia Department of Elections. The unofficial results show some of the Historic Triangle, especially the City of Williamsburg, leaned blue in this election.

Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democrat incumbent, won the U.S. Senate race with 55.75 percent of the vote statewide as of 9:45 p.m.

The City of Williamsburg and James City County both voted for Kaine, while 51.82 percent of York County voted for Republican Corey Stewart, according to the Virginia Department of Elections website.

At 9:45 p.m., Democrat Elaine Luria led the state 2nd Congressional District race for the House of Representatives with 50.76 percent of the district’s vote.

Not counting absentee ballots, Williamsburg and James City County voted for Luria with 71.04 and 52.75 percent of the vote, respectively, while 56.02 percent of York County voted for Republican incumbent Rep. Scott Taylor.

Rep. Rob Wittman, the Republican incumbent, led the 1st Congressional District race for the House of Representatives with 56.75 percent of the district’s vote as of 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.
