North Carolina won't certify a congressional election after allegations of vote tampering surface

Republicans are suddenly furious that a potential case of election fraud is being investigated.

DEC 1, 2018, 10:22 AM

Next week will mark the midway point between Election Day on November 6 and the first day of the new Congress on January 3. Yet one congressional race in North Carolina remains undecided, and an ongoing investigation could leave the seat vacant for the foreseeable future.

As of Saturday, the margin in North Carolinaís 9th Congressional District stands at 905 votes in favor of Republican Mark Harris over Democrat Dan McCready. Itís a narrow margin, though hardly the narrowest of the 2018 midterm election season. Democrat Ben McAdams was certified the winner over outgoing GOP Rep. Mia Love shortly before Thanksgiving despite winning by fewer than 700 votes.

And yet, North Carolinaís State Board of Elections refused to certify the results during a meeting Friday afternoon, after voting anomalies and allegations of ballot tampering triggered an investigation into possible election fraud.

The problems began even before Election Day, when voters around the district began reporting they had received absentee ballots they neither requested nor needed. Others submitted statements under oath that some individuals ó including at least one person with ties to the Harris campaign ó came to their doors to collect absentee ballots, even ones that hadnít been fully filled out.
