CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A group of protesters rallied then marched in front of the North Carolina State Board of Elections Friday, the same day the board was originally supposed to hold a hearing related to the 9th Congressional District investigation.
Several groups joined North Carolina NAACP in an effort to remind people voters haven't forgotten the situation that's prevented voters from having representation in the U.S. House.
"Two months and four days after the mid-term election thousands of votes are unaccounted for and democracy is compromised," said North Carolina Black Alliance Executive Director Marcus Bass said.
Republican Mark Harris is waiting to see if a judge will certify him the winner over Democrat Dan McCready. In the meantime, as the state's investigation continues, it'll be weeks before the governor appoints a new election board.
The people who attended the rally held signs that read "Stop stealing votes," "Election fraud" and "Voter integrity."
The rally ended with a march to the U.S. Attorney's Office as part of a call for a federal investigation. Meanwhile, the state continues to investigate possible absentee ballot fraud in the eastern part of the district.
Earlier Friday, the North Carolina Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying delay, deny and obstruct justice in the 9th District.
