Coleman will not concede
With over 50,000 provisional ballots left to be counted, far exceeding the current margin in the Lt. Governor’s race, this race remains too close to call. In fact, provisional ballots are particularly important in the event that a race that is too close to call to ensure that the final result reflects every citizen’s vote.
County Boards of Election are already in the process of tallying these provisional ballots so the number of provisional ballots will only grow. Once tallied the County Board of Elections then evaluate each provisional ballots by November 15th.
“Citizens who cast provisional ballots in many cases waited over three hours in line to make sure their voice was heard. The democratic process demands that we all wait for these votes to be counted so that every vote is counted and every citizens voice is heard in this election,” said Michael Tuso, Campaign Manager. Tuso added, “we are confident that when all the votes are counted, Linda Coleman will be North Carolina’s next Lt. Governor.” www.lindacoleman.org Twitter @coleman4ltgov
