Virginia Recount Update

From The Washington Post:

RICHMOND, Dec. 6 -- A statewide recount of almost 2 million ballots cast for attorney general last month will take place over two days starting Dec. 21, a judge decided Tuesday.

With only 323 votes dividing the two major-party candidates, the recount to determine the winner will occur barely three weeks before the scheduled inauguration.

While the Washington State is better at discovering ballots than counting them, at least they can get a recount going in less than a month and a half. In 2004, Washington was on to it's third count by then. Part of the delay may be because the recount laws were revised after the 2000 recount debacle in Florida.
