Update 9:22 p.m.: Harmeet Dhillion reports that the problems in Fairfax County are the result of outdated or defective memory cards.
Folks, heard from a TOP GOP lawyer in VA tonight that the Fairfax County thing had to do with an out of date/defective memory card. Both sides signed off on re-scan &it was witnessed by GOP lawyers in the room the whole time. Ain't over till its over, but looks good for Youngkin!

In Fairfax County, 71% of the vote is in. McAuliffe leads Youngkin 66.8% to 33.61%.
In news that will surprise no one, the Democrat stronghold of Fairfax County, Virginia, is reporting problems with reporting election results.
Terry McAuliffe’s campaign announced that there were problems in Fairfax County, according to 8 News’s Jackie DeFusco:
NEW INFO: @TerryMcAuliffe’s campaign says a portion of the early votes in Fairfax County need to be rescanned and there is no set timeline for that yet. His staff says that could delay the results.

Why is McAuliffe’s campaign reporting this information and not the Board of Elections? Your guess is as good as mine.
Fox News is reporting that the county plans to release “partial” results from the second scan later tonight.
The delay could be the result of any number of things—poorly trained election officials, machine breakdowns, computer problems, etc.. Let’s hope there are poll watchers on the scene to ensure there’s no funny business.
President Biden won Fairfax County by more than 40 points in 2020.
