Virginia General Assembly Results

Virginia Senate

All 40 Virginia Senate seats are up for election. In total, Republicans currently hold 23 seats and Democrats hold 17. Democrats need a net gain of 4 seats to take control of the Senate. A 50-50 tie would result in an advantage for Republicans because the Lt. Governor Bill Bolling (R) would cast tie breaking votes.
