On Tuesday, voters in Norfolk voted in the primary for the commonwealth’s attorney, which was between Amina Matheny-Willard, Megan C. Zwisohn and Ramin Fatehi.
Fatehi won the race with 60.8% of vote with 100% of precincts reporting.
The general election for Norfolk commonwealth’s attorney will be held Nov. 2, 2021.
There were also local races in Hampton.
Polls closed at 7 p.m. Here are the unofficial results.
After Fatehi’s win, the Working Families Party released a statement on the primary results:
“Voters in Norfolk took a bold stand for criminal justice reform. Ramin Fatehi ran on a progressive platform that says ‘no’ to a system of mass incarceration that has disrupted families for generations and ‘yes’ to community solutions that reduce harm, keep people out of prison and at home with their families. There’s still more work to be done and the Working Families Party is ready to fight side by side with Ramin to make sure he prevails in November,” said Working Families Party Senior Political Strategist Delvone Michael.
