Lynwood Lewis (D) defeated Wayne Coleman (R) in the special election.[1] Initial returns showed Lewis leading by only 22 votes,[2] within the range of a recount. Official results published by the State Board of Elections declared Lewis the winner by nine votes, leading Coleman to seek a recount.[3] Following the recount, Lewis was declared the winner by eleven votes.[4][5]

The seat was vacant following Ralph Northam's (D) election as Lieutenant Governor of Virginia on November 5, 2013.

A special election for the position of Virginia State Senate District 6 was called for January 7. Candidates were nominated by their party rather than chosen through a primary.[6]
