Raleigh, N.C. – Protests are being filed in 50 counties to challenge known instances of votes being cast by dead people, felons or individuals who voted more than once. Additional ballot protests are expected as additional cases are discovered.

"Now we know why Roy Cooper fought so hard against voter ID and other efforts to combat voter fraud as attorney general," said Russell Peck, Pat McCrory's campaign manager. "With each passing day, we discover more and more cases of voting fraud and irregularities. We intend to make sure that every vote is properly counted and serious voter fraud concerns are addressed before the results of the election can be determined." 

These protests follow the discovery of North Carolina Democrat Party-funded political action committees which appear to have paid individuals to fill out and witness hundreds of fraudulent absentee ballots for Democrats including Roy Cooper in Bladen County and potentially 11 others. The protests urge each county board of elections conduct a full scale investigation into these absentee ballots and review all witness signatures on these absentee ballot envelopes to look for evidence of obvious ballot harvesting, which could impact thousands of votes. These protests also request that the county election boards conduct this review before certifying the final number of lawful votes during their respective canvasses.
