The North Carolina Board of Elections voted unanimously to hold a new election in the state’s Ninth District after overwhelming evidence of vote tampering.
Prior to the board’s decision, Republican Mark Harris, the declared winner in the race who had been fighting for his election to be certified, changed his position and called for a new election. Harris was initially declared the winner by 905 votes over Democrat Dan McCready, but the race was never certified, as evidence began to surface of ballot fraud by employees of the Harris campaign. On the fourth day of an evidentiary hearing by the board, Harris said there should be another election.
“Through the testimony I’ve listened to over the last three days, I believe a new election should be called,” Harris said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “It has become clear to me that the public’s confidence in the Ninth District seat general election has been undermined to an extent that a new election is warranted.”
After hearing testimony all week, the board — which consists of three Democrats and two Republicans — ruled that absentee ballots were illegally collected by Harris staffers. A spokesperson for state Republican Party told Yahoo News that candidates would file to run in a new primary prior to the special election.
This is due to election fraud. . . by Republicans.
