That is why I intend to take my request for a full hand recount to a higher court.." ~ incumbent Craig Johnson (D)..

All this and more in today's voting news below...

NC: Scott Mooneyham: Addressing voter fraud
What legislative Republicans should fear is that a requirement is so poorly crafted that local poll workers can use it to turn away voters with a valid ID.

If that happens, the voter fraud will have been committed in the Legislature Building, and voters will know who to blame.

NC: Instant Runoff Comments (Election official on NC Court of Appeals Contest)
Another way to avoid the expense of runoff primaries, as I previously suggested here is to abolish the runoff. We don't need it. Most states don't use it.

NY: Supreme Court Certifies Senate Race, Declares Martins Winner -Johnson Will Appeal Warshawsky did not hide his disdain for the new voting machines.
