Newport News witnesses low voter turnout

Less than 30 percent of registered voters in Newport News turned out at the polls on Election Day, Nov. 8, but results favored Democrats locally.

The Results:

Senator John Miller retained his seat as did State Senator Mamie Locke.

Democrats Robin A. Abbott and Mamye Bacote lead votes locally, Bacote winning her election in the House of Delegates, but Abbott losing a close contest to Republican Mike Watson after he had victories in York County and James City County. Newcomer David E. Yancey had a Republican victory, also in the House of Delegates.
