RALEIGH (WTVD) — The State Board has clarified to ABC11 that it has not thrown out any protests.
The Watch Dog response: This is justice at its best. The local county board of elections are a make up of 2 Republicans and 1 Democrat and the state board is majority Republicans. They have chosen to do what is right and call it like it is. So therefore it appears that Governor McCrory need to concede. But that is just my ignant opinion.
The State Board of Elections has ordered counties not to throw out any ballots unless, if combined, they are outcome-determinative at the local level.
The counties are to inform the State of the number of ballots in question and then the state will then aggregate those ballots in statewide races to see if they would affect the outcome of those races.
Meanwhile, Gov. Pat McCrory’s fiercest critic says it’s time McCrory “end these games” as his campaign supports unfounded voting fraud allegations and acknowledge he lost his bid for re-election.
“This is a devastating blow to the McCrory campaign and further evidence that there is no path to victory for Governor McCrory,” said Cooper for NC Campaign Manager Trey Nix. “Roy Cooper’s lead has grown to over 9,000 votes as Republican claims of voter fraud have been routinely rejected by members of their own party. It’s time for Governor McCrory to respect the will of the voters.” (Read more)
