The son of Glenn Youngkin, the Republican businessman elected to become Virginia’s next governor, twice tried to vote in Tuesday’s election despite not being old enough to cast a ballot, according to The Washington Post.
The Post did not identify Youngkin’s 17-year-old son in its Friday report, which cited Fairfax County officials, because he was not charged with a crime and because he is a minor. An official in the Fairfax County elections office told The Post it didn’t appear he had violated election law.

Youngkin’s son attempted to vote at the Great Falls Library but was denied because he was not eligible, an election worker told the newspaper. He returned 20 minutes later insisting that he be allowed to vote.

Campaign spokesman Devin O’Malley said in a statement to the newspaper on Friday that Youngkin’s political opponents “are pitching opposition research on a 17-year-old kid who honestly misunderstood Virginia election law and simply asked polling officials if he was eligible to vote.”

When he was denied, O’Malley said the teen went to school.

On Tuesday, Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the former Virginia governor, in a hotly contested election that drew national attention for its implications about the 2022 midterm elections.
