Rep. Rob Wittman, Republican incumbent for Virginia's 1st Congressional District, is leading in the early returns results, according to the Virginia State Board of Elections.  None of Fredericksburg's five precincts have yet reported.

Update 7:40 p.m.

The Virginia State Board of Elections is delaying reporting of results until 8 p.m. because many voters are still in line at polling places.  "In consultation with officials from both the Republican and Democratic Party, the Virginia State Board of Elections has agreed to pause reporting until 8:00pm to ensure voters are not unduly influenced by preliminary results," said the SBE in a press release.

President Barack Obama, a Democrat, is running for re-election against former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the GOP nominee in the presidential race. There are several third-party candidates in the race for president, as well. 

Former Senator and Virginia Gov. George Allen is running against former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine in the race for the U.S. Senate. Allen, a Mount Vernon resident, was defeated by Jim Webb in the 2006 Senate race. Allen held the seat from 2000-2006.

Republican incumbent Rep. Rob Wittman, Democratic candidate Adam Cook and Independent candidate Gail Parker are competing for Virginia's First  Congressional District.

Elizabeth R. Rehm is running unopposed for the Ward 1 School Board seat.  She was appointed to that position in July 2012, after Pat Green won an at-large seat in the May election.
