North Carolina Karen Bridges F 2015-11 Trinity municipal Ineligible district voting In person 1 Criminal charges will be recommended in the voter fraud case concerning former Trinity resident Karen Bridges. The Randolph County Board of Elections voted to make the recommendation to the District Attorney’s Office, based on state statutes. Bridges cast a vote in the November 2015 city election, knowing that she was no longer a resident of Trinity and therefore ineligible to vote. Candidate Tommy Johnson challenged the right of Bridges, a former member of the Trinity Planning Board and a former Trinity City Council member, to vote in the election. Johnson is tied with candidate Linda Gantt, 168-to-168, for the seat. Bridges said she believed she did nothing wrong because a poll worker allowed her to vote. Darren Allen, an elections board member, said at an election protest meeting that he didn’t believe someone who had been involved in the process, had conducted several election campaigns and served in a town office could not have known she was ineligible to vote. The board also approved removing Bridges’ name from the county voter rolls. “She testified that she is no longer a resident of Trinity,” said board member William McAnulty. “She has admitted that she moved, so the administration can remove her name. We’ll send her notification that we did that.” The Randolph County Board of Elections also voted to recommend Trinity conduct a new election for the at-large seat that was on the Nov. 3 municipal election ballot. http://courier-tribune.com/news/local/trinity-may-have-hold-new-election http://courier-tribune.com/news/local/elections-board-recommends-charges-against...
