Politics matter. One of the questions incoming buyers ask me frequently is, “Is Charlottesville more Democratic or Republican?” *
Virginia’s 5th District is huge, and this election is not fully representative of all of the Charlottesville MSA, but it’s a “good enough” snapshot. (at least for these purposes). Sure, the results are unofficial, but thanks to Virginia’s State Board of Elections, we can see tonight’s election results.
Good job, City of Charlottesville. You couldn’t even muster 50% turnout.
Albemarle County – More Balanced than Charlottesville City
Greene County – More Republican than Charlottesville City or Albemarle County.
Nelson County – the best percentage turnout!
