Possible recount in Cheri Beasley-Mike Robinson race for supreme court

Posted by on Wed, Nov 5, 2014 at 8:28 AM

Early this morning, the State Board of Elections announced that the margin between Cheri Beasley and Mike Robinson was close enough to trigger a North Carolina law that provides for an automatic right to a recount in any statewide race when the margin is less than 0.5 percent or 10,000 votes, whichever is lower.

According to unofficial results, Beasley received 1,228,559 votes to Robinson's 1,225,525—a margin of 3,034 votes—for the state supreme court associate justice seat. Beasley is the incumbent.

The second-place finisher—Robinson—must submit the request in writing by noon Tuesday, Nov. 18.
