North Carolina Contested Election: Greg Cummings vs. Allen Dial 2015-11 Pembroke municipal Contested Election Ineligible district voting The State Board of Elections granted a new election for mayor of Pembroke, due to voter “irregularities," possible fraud and “systematic” errors made by the Robeson County Board of Elections. Allen Dial, a former town councilman, has not taken the oath of office as mayor because of residency challenges filed by Greg Cummings, the second-highest vote-getter in the race. Cummings, who finished 11 votes behind Dial, had challenged the residencies of 24 voters. At a hearing before the local board of elections, Cummings was able to show 11 of the challenged voters were ineligible to vote because they did not live at the addresses they gave when they cast their ballots. New election ordered. https://robesonian.com/news/83625/2-new-elections-ordered http://www.fayobserver.com/news/local/new-elections-ordered-for-pembroke-mayor-o... http://robesonian.com/opinion/82507/pembroke-election-flunks-smell-test
