ALEXANDRIA, VA. — Aside from congressional races, Alexandria chose the new mayor, members of City Council and representatives for the Alexandria City School Board on Nov. 6. Vice Mayor Justin Wilson was officially elected as mayor. And with just under 90 percent of precincts reporting, the six Democratic candidates had the lead for the six City Council seats. Patch will have updated results Wednesday morning.

Wilson was unopposed in his bid for mayor. He defeated incumbent Mayor Allison Silberberg in an upset victory during the June Democratic primary. There were numerous write-in votes, a flashback to the write-ins for then-Mayor Bill Euille after he lost the primary to Silberberg in 2015.
