North Carolina Contested Election: Leon Maynor vs. Laura Sampson 2015-11 Lumberton municipal Contested Election Vote buying The State Board of Elections ordered a new election for the Lumberton Precinct 7 City Council seat, due to voter “irregularities." possible fraud and “systematic” errors made by the Robeson County Board of Elections. The Precinct 7 race had been stalled by election protests filed by both the incumbent, Leon Maynor, and challenger, Laura Sampson. Following several recounts, including a full hand-to-eye recount, Maynor held a one-vote lead over Sampson. An investigator with the State Board of Elections testified that there is an ongoing investigation of vote-buying allegations against both Maynor and Sampson. The investigator, Matthew Martucci, a former New York Police Department detective, said that both candidates, local election officials and others have been interviewed about the allegations, which were made by multiple sources. All information collected during the investigation will be forwarded to the State Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina. The state board questioned Steve Stone, the chairman of the Robeson County Board of elections, extensively about how the hand recount was conducted, and after reviewing the ambiguous ballots, decided there was no way they could determine the voters’ “intent” based on the 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...
