DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — The Durham County Board of Elections is scheduled to take a look at more protests in the state’s gubernatorial race Monday.
The meeting today will address four election protests filed by the same person, alleging ineligible voters cast ballots that were improperly scanned and that absentee ballots were improperly cast on behalf of another person.
Today’s meeting comes after a conference call on Sunday where the State Board of Elections voted to hold a hearing Tuesday morning to decide on legal guidance for county boards to use when considering protests like the ones in Durham.
On Friday, Gov. Pat McCrory’s campaign manager asked the board to take jurisdiction over all existing county protests, but the board decided against that.
The board did take jurisdiction over a Bladen County protest. They have plans to set up a public portal for people to submit their comments online ahead of Tuesday’s hearing.
