North Carolina Tami Locust campaign (candidate) 2011-10 Greenville municipal Voter intimidation/coercion The Pitt County Board of Elections heard complaints on November 29, 2011, into possible voter fraud involving the District 2 race for Greenville City Council. In October, several people sent letters to the PCBOE saying they were forced to write in the name of a candidate. Those complaints allege that members of the Tami Locust campaign forced them to write in her name, claiming voter intimidation. Locust's campaign manager, Christopher Taylor, says neither he nor Locust intimidated potential voters. The results of the hearing were to be forwarded to the state Board of Elections. Incumbent Rose Glover won the election with 62% of the votes. http://www.witn.com/home/headlines/Date_Set_For_Greenville_Voter_Fraud_Hearing_1...
