Republicans held onto a majority in the Virginia Senate, winning a multi million-dollar election battle with Virginia Democrats.The key to the victory was the win by Richmond School Board member Glen Sturtevant over Chesterfield County Supervisor Daniel Gecker in the 10th District. Other Senate races had Democrats retaining seats they had held and Republicans doing the same.

In the Lake Gaston area, Republican Senator Frank Ruff was unopposed. Delegate Thomas Wright did have a Democratic opponent, but in a heavily Republican district, the Democrat, Gregory Marston, could only pull about a quarter of the vote. Wright also carried Mecklenburg County.

There were several contested, local races in both Brunswick and Mecklenburg Counties that drew voters from around Lake Gaston.

In Brunswick County there were contested races for Sheriff, won easily by incumbent Brian Roberts. Earl Stanley, Jr. got more than half the vote in a four-way race for Clerk of Court. Weldon Tyler won re-election to the Board of Supervisors by about 120 votes. Tyler's district includes some of the area around Lake Gaston.

In Mecklenburg County, incumbent Sheriff Bobby Hawkins took 81 percent of the vote. Michelle Gregory Gordon was elected as Clerk of Court with a two-to-one margin over the closest of two opponents

Two supervisors races involved districts that include some Lake Gaston residents, In District 3, Dan Tanner won a close three-way race by only 25 votes. In District 6, Bill Blalock won with more than 60 percent of the vote. And in the First District School Board race, Brent Richie won with about 76 percent of the vote.

There were also municipal elections in the North Carolina counties that border Lake Gaston but none of those races represented areas on the Lake.
