CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- It has now been almost one week since the Republican primary for the Fifth Congressional District of Virginia, and there is still no winner.

Representative Bob Good trails behind state Senator John McGuire by just a few hundred votes.

The Virginia Public Access Project reports that mail-in and provisional ballots are still being counted.

VPAP collects data from across the Commonwealth in order to provide real-time updates and statistics during elections.

Chris Piper, the executive director of VPAP, says there was something that occurred during this particular primary that hadn’t been seen before.

“Congressional District Five, which is a heavily Republican district, actually had some of the highest early vote totals in the Republican Primary,” he said. “Republicans tend not to vote early at the same level that Democrats do. But they did in this particular election for Congressional District Five, so that was interesting to see.”

With ballots still being counted, the next question concerns how small the margin will be between Good and McGuire.

In Virginia, a candidate can request a recount if the margin is within one percentage point. If it is even closer than that, it may trigger an automatic recount.
