‘NC Will Not Be Kept In Dark By Bureaucrats’: State Lawmakers Demand Data, Transparency from Board of Elections as Results Still Withheld

RALEIGH – The N.C. State Board of Elections has announced the final results of the 2020 elections will not be announced until as late as the end of next week, or November 13. That is not good enough for state lawmakers on the Elections Committees of the N.C. House and Senate.

In a letter to the State Board of Elections, the lawmakers demanded that all available information be made public by 4:00 PM Friday. They also correctly noted that the Board MUST have access to this data, because, even with absentee ballots outstanding, the much advertised N.C. BallotTrax system would have tracked such ballots and know exactly how many were postmarked by election day.

Earlier on Friday, dozens of protesters held a demonstration outside the State Board of Elections to demand transparency and integrity in the vote counting process.

President Trump is up by approximately 77,000 votes, but that race, and many others have not yet been called. The stated reasons from the Board are that they are waiting until the end of the acceptance period for absentee ballots, but they have not released any information about how many of those outstanding ballots were postmarked, or offered simple mathematical explanations about how those ballots could mean for the presidential race and others.

North Carolina is one of handful of states that have yet to certify a winner, or even finish counting ballots, in the 2020 elections.
