North Carolina Elections Board Delays Hearing on Uncalled Race With Allegations of Election Fraud

The North Carolina State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement announced on Friday afternoon that it would be holding a public evidentiary hearing pertaining to its investigation into a congressional race in the 9th District on January 11, 2019. “The location and details of the proceedings will be released in the coming days,” a board spokesman said in a statement. “State investigators are awaiting additional documents from parties subpoenaed in this matter and finalizing the investigation prior to the hearing.” Republican Mark Harris led Democrat Dan McCready by about 905 votes on election night last month, but the race wasn’t certified. The board has been investigating potential election fraud and has subpoenaed the Harris campaign as well as one of its consulting firms, Red Dome Group. Now that the hearing is set to take place on January 11, Harris will not be immediately seated in the new Congress at the start of the year.
