KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – Counties throughout the state are still tallying absentee and provisional ballots.
The Lenoir County Board of Elections held its meeting Tuesday.
Workers spent the week researching each ballot and now it’s time to make a decision.
“They make their notes on it, and then the board sits down and goes through each one of them individually to decide if they’re going to count it or not count it,” said Dana King, Lenoir County Board of Elections director.
Lenoir County has 370 provisional ballots to go through, and Pitt County has 2,200.
All provisional ballots have to be sorted through by Friday morning at 11.
The process is something poll workers do every election, no matter the outcome.
