Wake elections board denies activist's challenges to voter rolls
Posted August 21, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — A voter fraud activist stormed out of a Wake County Board of Elections meeting Tuesday after the board denied his challenges to names on local voter rolls.
Jay DeLancy with the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina had filed challenges against more than 500 Wake County voters, claiming they reported on jury forms they were not citizens. The elections board staff said most of the challenges were mismatched or out of date.
The final 18 challenges were dismissed Tuesday, and DeLancy kicked the door on his way out of the board meeting.
He called it a sad day for voters, but elections officials said they followed state and federal law in every case.
