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. The seat was vacant following Ralph Northam's (D) election as Lieutenant Governor of Virginia on November 5, 2013. Lynwood Lewis (D) defeated Wayne Coleman (R) in the special election. Initial returns showed Lewis leading by only 22 votes, within the range of a recall. Official results published by the State Board of Elections declared Lewis the winner by nine votes, leading Coleman to seek a recount. Following the recount, Lewis was declared the winner by eleven votes.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9]
