— Scotland Neck’s mayor has earned another term. Incumbent James Mills edged challenger Raymond Watson by 11 votes, according to the Halifax County Board of Elections.

The board certified Mills’ victory Tuesday.

Voters in Scotland Neck returned to the polls March 16 after results of the November election were invalidated.

Mills won in November by one vote, but both men claimed that provisional ballots were accepted from voters who didn't live in the town. The State Board of Elections ordered the second election.
