Official cites discrepancy in votes in North Carolina county

November 7, 2018

KINSTON, N.C. (AP) — An election official in a North Carolina county says there’s a discrepancy in votes collected at a one-stop voting site.

Lenoir County Elections Director Dana King told news outlets vote reporting was halted Tuesday due to the discrepancy, meaning a recount will be required.

When King couldn’t match the total number of one-stop votes with the figure they ended with, she said she called the state board. The results which had been posted to the state board’s website were then taken down.

King said she asked state board members to come to the county to determine the source of the problem. She said there was nothing wrong with the voting machines and didn’t know if the discrepancy was the result of human error.
