Report from Raleigh
This week the state House passed Senate Bill 133 entitled "Reconfirming Provisional Voting". This legislation came about because of the still unresolved election for Superintendent of Public Instruction between Democrat June Atkinson and Republican Bill Fletcher. On November 2, 2004 there were a total of 11,310 provisional ballots cast by voters outside their home precincts. These ballots are crucial to determining the winner of the Atkinson-Fletcher contest. The NC Supreme Court has ruled these ballots cannot be counted according to state law in effect when the election was held. Senate Bill 133 changes the law - retroactively to January 1, 2004, which means the contested ballots can now be counted. It also provides that in future elections anyone who is registered to vote in a given county can go to any precinct in that county on election day and request a provisional ballot. Passing this legislation retroactively is the most disturbing part of the bill, but there are also a number of other points which deserve mention. Click Here to read the rest of the information!
