NC Lt Governor race STILL too close to call

With 97 of 100 counties reporting their canvassed totals to the state by Friday evening, Forest had a roughly 6,600-vote lead over Coleman out of more than 4.3 million ballots cast, compared to an 11,000-vote edge late on election night. State law says Coleman can get a recount if the margin falls within 10,000 votes.

Local election officials on Friday morning began their canvasses, a process that involves adding legally cast provisional ballots and other late-arriving mail-in absentee ballots to vote totals and checking numbers for errors before submitting to the state. Officials in Buncombe County in western North Carolina, the largest county that hasn't reported, were still canvassing at almost 10 p.m. Friday, State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett said.
