NCGOP Statement in Regards to Durham County

RALEIGH, NC — The NCGOP releases the following statement in regards to Durham County:

“We are aware of the efforts to extend voting hours in Durham County due to a brief period of known voting interruption in a single precinct. This problem has been solved, and was solved promptly by the local election workers. We have not yet seen any evidence that would justify extending voting hours for the entirety of Durham County due to a brief interruption in one of their 57 precincts. By law, an extension in voting hours would require votes cast during the extension be done by provisional ballot, and whether those provisional ballots would be counted are subject to post-election legal proceedings. We do not want any voter to be disenfranchised by relying on a provisional ballot cast under the false expectation their ballot will automatically be counted— and we encourage everyone who has not yet cast their ballot to do so within normal voting hours which conclude at 7:30 PM.”
