Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Recount To Resume at 8:30 AM – 11/20/2020

Press Release:

    The Beaufort County Board of Elections began a recount at 8:30 this morning of the North Carolina Chief Justice Contest and expected the recount to be completed today.

    While auditing, we found that a ballot jam recounting the mail in ballots caused several ballots to go through the machine without being counted. We manually counted the number of ballots and confirmed that the number of ballots was greater than the tabulator count. So, we will need to recount the mail in ballots. All others have been recounted.

    We will begin to recount at 8:30 tomorrow morning. With roughly 2000 ballots to count, we are estimating it will take around 2 hours.
