Yancey County Board of Elections Meeting Notice

The Yancey County Board of Elections will hold an in-person meeting to conduct a mandatory state wide recount beginning at 9:00 am on Tuesday, November 24, 2020. The recount will be for the office of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. This meeting will stay in session until the counting is complete.

This recount is due to a statewide recount of more than five million ballots cast in North Carolina’s Supreme Court chief justice contest  that will begin later this week.

The recount likely will take several days in some counties, and county boards of elections must complete their recounts by Wednesday, November 25. It is North Carolina’s first statewide recount since the 2016 state auditor’s race, which confirmed the results in that contest.

Democrat Cheri Beasley requested the recount in a letter to the State Board of Elections on Tuesday. Beasley trails Republican Paul Newby by fewer than 400 votes out of nearly 5.4 million cast in the race for the state’s highest court. That puts the race within the 10,000-vote threshold for the trailing candidate to demand a recount.
