NC Board of Elections is holding an unnecessary $30K runoff

“The State Board of Elections decided Wednesday that the race for the District 2 Board of Education seat should proceed.”

via Wake school board runoff will proceed :: WRAL.com.

“Truitt, asked for the runoff following the Oct. 6 election, in which she received 24 percent of the vote to contender John Tedesco’s 49 percent. Last week, she conceded the race and withdrew her request for the run-off.

Because state law doesn’t cover instances where a candidate tries to withdraw such a request, the Wake County Board of Elections referred the matter to the state elections board.

Ballots have been printed and absentee and early voting have started. The election will cost taxpayers more than $30,000.”
