Nine county boards of elections are meeting today to consider a total of at least 4,300 additional absentee by-mail ballots, and approved ballots will be added to the unofficial results on the State Board of Elections website after the meetings.
Under state law, elections officials must release the number of provisional ballots cast in each county by noon two days after the election. The State Board surveyed the 100 county boards of elections across North Carolina and provides the provisional ballot numbers by county below.
North Carolina elections officials wish to remind Election Day voters that it may take a few weeks before their “voter history” is updated to reflect their recent vote in their voter record available through the State Board of Elections’ Voter Search tool.
The State Board extended voting at six polling sites.
As with any election, county boards of elections across North Carolina have begun the 10-day post-election process of counting the remaining ballots and conducting audits to verify the results.
After the November 3 general election, the State Board of Elections will randomly select precincts, early voting sites and by-mail ballots to be counted by hand in each county.
State Board of Elections Executive Director Karen Brinson Bell and State Board Chair Damon Circosta will be available at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday for a dial-in media briefing regarding Election Day and post-election processes.
The State Board of Elections will hold a remote meeting beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
