RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s NAACP says Gov. Pat McCrory and his Republican allies are playing games with the election results.

North Carolina NAACP president William Barber said Wednesday that Republicans are trying to delay results simply because they’re not satisfied. Democrat Roy Cooper holds a slim lead over McCrory in the still-undecided governor’s race.

But Barber has a message for the GOP: “The election is over and it’s time for the games to stop.”

McCrory has started the process of asking for a recount, a conservative leaning group filed a lawsuit over votes by same-day registrants and there have been formal election protests around the state.

Bob Hall, who leads the nonprofit Democracy North Carolina, says some voters are being unfairly maligned in local elections complaints with false accusations that they’re felons.
