Absentee Ballot Challenge has been denied

Based on guidance from the Executive Director of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, the Watauga County Board of Elections will not hear 26 voter challenges originally scheduled for its canvass meeting on Friday, November 18.

The concern was in relation to mail in ballots. the Executive Director the North Carolina State Board of Elections Karin Brinson Bell said that based on her understanding of the challenges before your board, proceeding to hear those challenges would violate the terms of the injunction. She is therefore obligated under the terms of the injunction to inform us that the county board should refrain from proceeding to a hearing on these challenges. We will update you as more information becomes available.
