Abstract

Three weeks on, the results of North Carolina’s gubernatorial election have not yet been declared. Despite losing by nearly 10,000 votes, Governor Pat McCrory initially demanded a statewide recount, but is now pursuing a recount in one county where he alleges voter irregularities have occurred. Newly Paul writes that McCrory’s allegations of voter fraud echo those of Donald Trump, claims which can also lead to greater scrutiny towards groups which assist voters in areas with greater minority populations.
