NC Elections web site reported incorrect figures

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina elections officials say a programing error has resulted in incorrect data for precincts reporting being displayed on the state board's website as results are being tabulated.

State Board of Elections spokesman Joshua Lawson said Tuesday night that a programing error had caused the initial numbers for precincts reporting to be incorrectly tabulated. Lawson said programmers are working to resolve the error.

On Wednesday, the State Board of Elections issued a statement about the display error.

“We regret that initial display errors caused frustration for our voters and our county boards of elections,” said Executive Director Kim Westbrook Strach. “The State Board takes seriously its responsibility to report accurate and timely results. Our dedicated staff worked throughout the evening to resolve these issues. This agency is committed to the continued improvement of our website.”

The Associated Press collects county-by-county voting data independently of the state website.
