Glass will be sworn in Wednesday, according to the Virginia Public Access Project.
The seat was left vacant after former Del. Jay Jones resigned to focus on being a father.
The Norfolk City Democratic Committee held a COVID-19 protocol drive-thru unassembled caucus, also known as a firehouse primary, on Dec. 21 to choose the Democratic candidate for the seat.
Glass bested three candidates vying for the nomination: Alicia E. Smith and Danté Walston.
