Vote Recounts Don't Change Outcomes For NC House Races

Recounts in three close races for the North Carolina state House are complete, with no change in the outcomes from Election Day.

Cumberland elections director Terri Robertson said Thursday recounts completed late Wednesday show Democratic Rep. Rick Glazier leading Republican Jackie Warner by 46 votes, while Democratic Rep. Diane Parfitt leads GOP challenger Johnny Dawkins by 108 votes.

Warner filed a request for a new election because she said there were irregularities in ballot tallies and problems with electronic voting machines. The county board will hear the protest Monday.

A Rowan County recount also gave Republican Harry Walker a 166-vote victory over Democratic incumbent Lorene Coates.

Should the results stand, Republicans will have a 68-52 majority in the House come January.
