RALEIGH, N.C. — The State Board of Elections held an emergency public meeting Sunday afternoon to discuss election protests filed in the North Carolina Governor’s race, according to WTVD.

After some discussion, a motion was made to bypass most decisions on election protests and instead reconvene Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. It was passed unanimously.

Lawyers from both political parties are expected to be there.

The board did vote to take full jurisdiction in Bladen County due to a number of reported issues. They briefly discussed doing the same in Durham County, but decided to hold off on a vote until the Tuesday meeting.

Multiple election protests have been filed with county Boards of Election in the last week regarding absentee ballot fraud, felon voting, double voting, and dead people voting. Absentee and other ballots are being certified and were supposed to be counted with the final vote canvass Friday, but Republican incumbent Gov. Pat McCrory’s campaign said 85 of 100 county Boards of Election have rescheduled their canvasses.
