Date Set For Greenville Voter Fraud Hearing

A date has been set to hear complaints into possible voter fraud involving the District 2 race for Greenville City Council.

Last month several people sent letters to the Pitt County Board of Elections saying they were forced to write in the name of a candidate. Those complaints allege that members of the Tami Locust campaign forced them to write in her name, claiming voter intimidation. Locust's campaign manager, Christopher Taylor, says neither he nor Locust intimidated potential voters.

The elections board will hold the hearing on November 29th at 9:00 a.m. They said it will be a information gathering session with witnesses being subpoenaed, while the results of the hearing will be forwarded on to the state Board of Elections.

Incumbent Rose Glover won the election last week with 62% of the votes.

    i don't understand how someone can "force" another person to vote a certain way.

    Begin Sarcasm/ What lies, voter fraud doesn't exist it just Republican propaganda! /End Sarcasm Anyway, I love how every time someone says that voter fraud doesn’t happen, it happens practically the next day. Wasn’t it just last year when they were talking about wanting photo IDs for voting that the very next election someone tried to pull a fast one at one of the voting polls. Especially after the big old stink people made about the IDs, they even tried to defend the guy that voted straight ticket but wanted to ‘try again’ because he ‘did it wrong’.
