Democrats secured six seats in Virginia’s U.S. House, taking a narrow lead over Virginia Republicans, who now have five House seats. This was the first election in Virginia since redistricting after the 2020 census.  

Going into the election, independent polling showed that Democrats had a strong lead in five districts while Republicans had a strong lead in three districts. VA-02, VA-07, and VA-10, however, were highly contested. 

These are the final results in each Virginia House district from The Associated Press: 

District 1: Incumbent Rep. Rob Wittman (R-Va.) will continue to serve VA-01 after winning with 56.8% of the vote with 99% of the votes reported. Wittman went up against Democrat Herb Jones and Independent David Foster in VA-01. District 1 gained parts of Henrico and Chesterfield counties and lost the city of Fredericksburg and Prince William County since the last election in 2020.

District 2: Incumbent Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) lost her bid for reelection against state Sen. Jen Kiggans in the 2nd District (R-Virginia Beach). Kiggans received 52% of the vote with 99% of the votes reported. The race was very tight – one of the closest in this year’s midterms. The new district still gets most of its voters from the city of Virginia Beach, but no longer includes the cities of Hampton, Newport News and Norfolk. 

District 3: Incumbent Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (D-Va.), who has served in Congress since 1993, was reelected. Scott was challenged by Republican Terry Namkung in VA-03, and won with 67.3% of the vote with 98% of the votes reported. District 3 now includes the city of Franklin, parts of the city of Suffolk, and all of Isle of Wight County.   

District 4: This race featured a rematch between incumbent Rep. Donald McEachin (D-Va.) and Republican challenger Leon Benjamin. McEachin, who was seeking his fourth term in Congress, was reelected with 63.8% of the vote with 96% of the votes reported. He will represent a new 4th District that includes Brunswick County.    

District 5: Incumbent Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.) defeated Democrat Josh Throneburg. Good will hold his second term representing VA-05. He won with 58% of the vote with 99% of the votes reported. The district now includes Goochland, Amelia and parts of Hanover County.

District 6: Incumbent Rep. Benjamin Lee “Ben” Cline (R-Va.) defeated Democrat Jennifer Lewis for a second time. Cline won with a comfortable lead and will serve for his third term – winning 64.7% of the vote with 99% of the votes reported.    

District 7: Incumbent Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va) won the general election for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District against Yesli Vega (R) with 52% of the vote. 98% of the votes are reported. This will be Spanberger’s third term as a Congresswoman. District 7 no longer includes Richmond since districts were redrawn.  

District 8: Incumbent Rep. Donald Sternoff Beyer Jr. (D-Va) defeated Karina Lipsman (R), and Teddy Fikre (I). Beyer won with 73.4% of the vote with 98% of the votes reported. District 8 now includes a larger chunk of Fairfax County. 

District 9: Incumbent Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va) has won Virginia’s 9th congressional district with 73.5 % of the vote with 98% of the votes reported. Griffith competed against Taysha Devaughan (D) for the district, which is now primarily located in southwest Virginia.  

District 10: Incumbent Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va) won the general election for U.S. House Virginia District 10 with 52.9% of the vote with 99% of the votes reported. Wexton competed against Hung Cao (R) for the district. In the days leading up to the election, the seat became a toss-up. District 10 now includes Fauquier and Rappahannock counties but does not include the city of Winchester.  

District 11: Incumbent Rep. Gerald Edward Connolly (D-Va) was named the winner of U.S. House Virginia District 11 with 66.4% of the vote with 99% of the votes reported. Connolly ran against James Myles (R) for the district, which no longer includes Prince William County.
