My understanding there's 30+ Orange provisionals. Haven't heard about Chatham. Anderson/Baddour tracked close in Chatham - so I'd expect any provisionals to follow that pattern.

§ 163‑182.7. Ordering recounts.

(a) Discretionary Recounts. – The county board of elections or the State Board of Elections may order a recount when necessary to complete the canvass in an election. The county board may not order a recount where the State Board of Elections has already denied a recount to the petitioner.

(b) Mandatory Recounts for Ballot Items Within the Jurisdiction of the County Board of Elections. – In a ballot item within the jurisdiction of the county board of elections, a candidate shall have the right to demand a recount of the votes if the difference between the votes for that candidate and the votes for a prevailing candidate is not more than one percent (1%) of the total votes cast in the ballot item, or in the case of a multiseat ballot item not more than one percent (1%) of the votes cast for those two candidates. The demand for a recount must be made in writing and must be received by the county board of elections by 5:00 P.M. on the first business day after the canvass. The recount shall be conducted under the supervision of the county board of elections.

(c) Mandatory Recounts for Ballot Items Within the Jurisdiction of the State Board of Elections. – In a ballot item within the jurisdiction of the State Board of Elections, a candidate shall have the right to demand a recount of the votes if the difference between the votes for that candidate and the votes for a prevailing candidate are not more than the following:

(1) For a nonstatewide ballot item, one percent (1%) of the total votes cast in the ballot item, or in the case of a multiseat ballot item, one percent (1%) of the votes cast for those two candidates.

(2) For a statewide ballot item, one‑half of one percent (0.5%) of the votes cast in the ballot item, or 10,000 votes, whichever is less.

The demand for a recount must be in writing and must be received by the State Board of Elections by noon on the second business day after the county canvass. If at that time the available returns show a candidate not entitled to a mandatory recount, but the Executive Director determines subsequently that the margin is within the threshold set out in this subsection, the Executive Director shall notify the eligible candidate immediately and that candidate shall be entitled to a recount if that candidate so demands within 48 hours of notice. The recount shall be conducted under the supervision of the State Board of Elections.

(d) Rules for Conducting Recounts. – The State Board of Elections shall promulgate rules for conducting recounts. Those rules shall be subject to the following guidelines:

(1) The rules shall specify, with respect to each type of voting system, when and to what extent the recount shall consist of machine recounts and hand‑to‑eye recounts. Hand‑to‑eye recounts shall also be ordered as provided by G.S. 163‑182.7A.

(2) The rules shall provide guidance in interpretation of the voter's choice.

(3) The rules shall specify how the goals of multipartisan participation, opportunity for public observation, and good order shall be balanced. (2001‑398, s. 3; 2003‑278, ss. 10(b), 10(c); 2005‑323, s. 6(a); 2005‑428, s. 11(b).)

Wake school bond vote was pretty uplifting--a blow for sanity that could take some pressure off other school districts in the region.

Crossed in the wind. Amazingly close race. Not like the referendum ("bed made, time to lie in it"),

Chatham

Charles (Chuck) Anderson 6,305
Allen Baddour 6,470
Carl R. Fox 8,889
Adam Stein 4,284

Orange

Charles (Chuck) Anderson 10063 19.40%
Allen Baddour 10550 20.34%
Carl R. Fox 18600 35.85%
Adam Stein 12666 24.41%

Totals

Charles (Chuck) Anderson 10063+6305 = 16368
Allen Baddour 10550+6470 = 17020
Carl R. Fox 18600+8889 = 27489
Adam Stein 12666+4284 = 16950

Actually, it's looking like Fox and Baddour - by 70 votes!

Chatham + Orange = total
Charles (Chuck) Anderson 6,305 + 10,063 = 16,368
Allen Baddour 6,470 + 10550 = 17,020
Carl R. Fox 8,889 + 18600 = 27,489
Adam Stein 4,284 + 12666 = 16,950

It looks like provisional ballots will have to be looked at very closely and a re-count may be in order.

Fox and Stein Win
Gordan, Jacobs, and Nelson Win

Chatham Co returns can be found here. I don't see an indicator of when they were last updated. 18 precincts reporting on the current figures: http://www.co.chatham.nc.us/

All Chatham and Orange have reported except for provisional ballots. It looks as if there are only 18 precincts in Chatham co.

i see adam stein down by 70 votes. am i missing something?

Ruby-how many precincts have reported in Chatham in the Superior Court judgeship race? I am at home. I have tried the Chatham County website and no results come up yet.

Joal

Joan,

You're welcome to join us here.

Heath Shuler's pulling ahead of Up Chuck Taylor in the 11th, but there's a lot of votes to count still.

Hayes is up slightly over challenger Kissell (D) in the 8th. This one would be a heartbreaker to lose.

Wake Schools Bonds seem likely to pass - a huge setback to the government haters on the right.

ruby how do i get person county election results

Ruby, would you be willing to create another thread for non-local discussions?

Lieberman, Santorum, Shuler/Taylor... all on my mind!

So for the math impaired, that's:

Anderson: 7,573
Baddour: 7,564
Fox: 12,582
Stein: 8,279

So, it's looking pretty much like the primary so far, which is what I expected.

In Orange County, the Indy Endorsement matters more than all the other papers put together, IMO.

Superior Court Judge District 15B (2 seats available)

Orange + Chatham:

Charles (Chuck) Anderson
4,422 + 3,151

Allen Baddour
4,338 + 3,126

Carl R. Fox
8,374 + 4,208

Adam Stein
5,998 + 2,281

The early ballots usually trend differently from the Election Day ballots. They tend to represent more conservative voters, but that's changed over the years as more people vote early.
Chatham turnout may play a role in the judges race.
I think the referendum in Orange is headed for passage. Sorry Will.

So do the absentee and early ballots usually go the same way as Election Day ballots?

I was surprised by the referendum results so far, but perhaps the endorsements of both papers and the Indy were a big factor there.
