RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- A three-judge panel will meet today for the upcoming recount in the deadlocked race for Virginia's next attorney general.

The court, set to meet in Richmond this afternoon, will establish the ground rules for next week's recount.

Democrat Mark Herring was certified the winner of the race several ago beating out Republican Mark Obenshain by just 165 votes.

The recount will begin next Monday in Fairfax.

The rest of the Commonwealth will begin their recounts next Tuesday.

The recount court is scheduled to reconvene on Dec. 19 once the localities finish their recount.
