No Provisional Ballots Cast in Runoff Election in Nash and Edgecombe Counties

No provisional ballots were cast in the December 6 runoff election for the Nash County Public Schools Board of Education District 8. Eligible voters from Nash and Edgecombe counties participated in the election. Both counties reported no provisional ballots. Under state law, election officials must release the number of provisional ballots cast in each county by noon two days after each election. A voter may cast a provisional ballot when their name does not appear on the poll book or other questions arise about their eligibility to vote or to vote a particular ballot. The provisional voter fills out a form called a provisional application, which includes information that the county board can use to research the voter’s eligibility.
