Allegations of G.O.P. Election Fraud Shake North Carolina’s Ninth District

North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District begins in the Democratic suburbs of Charlotte, but the gerrymandered counterweight, which has kept the seat in Republican hands since 1963, is a rural Republican stronghold stretching east along the South Carolina border. It is here, in Bladen County and the neighboring Robeson County, that the problems began. Steve Stone, the chairman of the Robeson County Board of Elections, told the WashingtonPost that election officials became concerned in August by people dropping off large numbers of registration forms and absentee-ballot requests. He said that county residents had also made reports of people going door to door, telling voters that their registrations had been dropped, that they needed to re-register, and that they should sign an absentee-ballot request form. The large number of complaints prompted state investigators to seize completed absentee-ballot request forms and envelopes from both counties in the days after the election.

House race in limbo after North Carolina voter fraud claims

(Reuters) - North Carolina’s board of elections on Friday declined to certify Republican Mark Harris’ apparent victory in a U.S. House of Representatives race, calling instead for a public hearing to investigate claims of voter fraud and irregularities.

Harris edged Democrat Dan McCready by 905 votes in the Nov. 6 congressional election. But the validity of hundreds of mail-in absentee ballots from a rural county has been called into question, the elections board said on Twitter.
The board voted 7-2 to hold a hearing due “to claims of numerous irregularities and concerted fraudulent activities related to absentee mail ballots,” Joshua Malcolm, vice chairman of the board of elections, said in a recorded session on Friday.

WTF - BUMP THIS THREAD!!

I mean, didn't we hear just yesterday about "ballot harvesting" in California? This is WAY worse and they're gonna have to hold another election and toss this convicted a-hole felon back in prison!
L. McCrae Dowless Jr., a bit player in North Carolina’s incessant battles over voting rules and alleged fraud, is at the center of a spiraling battle over whether deceit and misconduct corrupted the campaign for Congress in the Ninth District.

State regulators have refused to certify the preliminary results, which showed the Republican nominee, Mark Harris, with a 905-vote edge over Dan McCready, his Democratic opponent. If state officials ultimately find that the balloting was tainted enough to “cast doubt” on the results, they would have the power to order a new election.

The alleged and acknowledged machinations of Mr. Dowless, who has a felony record and a history of financial fraud, have produced yet another bitter electoral impasse in a state that seems perpetually engulfed by them.

State officials are particularly concerned that people working on behalf of Mr. Harris’s campaign picked up, or “harvested,” absentee ballots, a crime under North Carolina law. In one affidavit, a Bladen County resident, Emma Shipman, wrote that she had handed over her ballot to a woman who told her she was assigned to collect ballots in the district. Another voter wrote that she had handed over her incomplete ballot to a woman, who promised she would finish it.

Mr Knoetze,

Had you taken the time to study the subject you would know that what's going on here is quite different.

But drive through .. nothing to see here.
Mr. Bo,

If you had taken the time to study the subject, you would know they are exactly the same, except in California, voter mining is statewide and allowed by state law.

Sorry to ruin your premise, but seriously, do you every really have a premise.

Sounds like voter mining (whatever that is) is the goal of every state that is gerrymandered. Can you provide an official definition?

Ms. Panzareta,

Voter mining is the practice of paid operatives going door to door to collect absentee ballots. It is inherently open to voter fraud as there is no accountability for the paid operatives.
