 Geostat Center: Collections: Virginia Elections and State Elected Officials Database Project, 1776-2005
Virginia has a special place in the history and ongoing development of an electoral and representative form of government in the United States.
In 1776, Virginia upheld this democratic tradition, electing delegates to the 1776 state constitutional convention, which made regular elections of the Virginia General Assembly a constitutional requirement in the 1776 state constitution.
Since then, Virginia has extended the practice of elections to several additional state offices: to Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1789; to Governors, Lieutenant Governors, and State Attorneys General in 1851; to U.S. Senators in 1916; and to members of all but one of the state’s constitutional conventions since 1776.

Thad Beyle of UNC-CH and Jennifer Jensen of Binghamton University (SUNY) have compiled gubernatorial election data for all candidates in all states from 1977 to 2004.
Since procedures for gubernatorial elections vary by state, compiling the data into uniform data sets is challenging.
These files contain the number of voters in each state's general election, as well as the cost per vote -- the total spent in that state's gubernatorial election cycle by all candidates, divided by the number of voters in the general election.

 Robert Moran on Virginia & Election 2005 on National Review Online
First, they note that Virginia is behaviorally a Republican state that has voted for George Allen first as governor and then as senator, has a large Republican congressional delegation and has voted for a Republican-dominated legislature in Richmond.
It’s because of this, and similar experiences in past gubernatorial elections, that consultants now talk about a late Republican surge in the state where conservatives and soft Republicans “come home.” This assumes that the polling is accurate.
Virginia is behaviorally a center-right state with a history of Republican candidates doing better in the voting booth than they do in the crosstabs (crosstabs are data books that pollsters use to analyze the detailed results of surveys).

 Antoine Clarke's Election Watch: Virginia problem (and opportunity) for Democrats
The gubernatorial election in Virginia this year throws up problems and an opportunity for the Democratic Party.
As Governor of Virginia, Mark Warner has the sort of executive experience that seems to translate into a better presidential candidate than a long-time Senator (as John Kerry discovered to his cost last year).

Yesterday, led by the RNC, right-wing blogs in Virginia tried to push along the rumor that Mark Warner didn’t want to be seen with gubernatorial candidate Tim Kaine (never mind that Kaine is now surging on Jerry Kilgore).
I can’t vote in the Virginia election, but being in the DC metro area media market, I’m a bystander to the 2005 Virginia gubernatorial race and both campaigns are pouring tons of money into campaign ads.

 Antoine Clarke's Election Watch: 10/23/2005 - 10/29/2005
That said, what comes out of the various recount efforts in Florida 2000, Ohio 2004 for presidential elections and Washington 2004 for the gubernatorial election is just how shambolic decentralization is. I shall assume that the result is a fair one in Washington, and that Miss Gregoire was properly elected.
But the problem is that if her election was rigged, we couldn't tell.
If you have an election where polling stations open and close at different times and where reports of the likely result can be broadcast before all the polling stations have closed, there has to be an opportunity for vote-rigging.

I posted a comment earlier that I thought the Democrats handling of the recount and the mysterious appearance of just enough brand new ballots to give Gregoire the victory would lead to an inevitable Rossi victory in the 2006 Senate race, if he chooses to run.

Abstract: We examine the relative performance of voting technologies by studying presidential, gubernatorial, and senatorial election returns across hundreds of counties in the United States from 1988 to 2000.
Relying on a fixed effects regression applied to an unbalanced panel of counties, we find that in presidential elections, traditional paper ballots produce the lowest rates of uncounted votes (i.e.
In gubernatorial and senatorial races, paper, optical scan ballots, and DREs are significantly better in minimizing the residual vote rate than mechanical lever machines and punch cards.
