Election Day seems so long ago. A lot has happened in the more than two weeks since we thought it would all be over.
Since then, the narrow margin in the contest for governor has kept teams of lawyers busy, none of whom can say when the election results will be official.
Protested votes, provisional ballots and voters who said they registered at the Division of Motor Vehicles but didn’t show up on the rolls have combined to delay the outcome. Now that Gov. Pat McCrory has demanded a recount of the 7,700 or so votes that separates him from Attorney General Roy Cooper, a lot can happen between now and the final results.
