RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Nearly all of the Election Day results in North Carolina are now official.

The State Board of Elections on Tuesday certified the winners of the Nov. 6 elections for federal and state offices. Board leaders signed documents affirming the winners that go to the Secretary of State’s office for safekeeping.

Certified winners in North Carolina include Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who edged President Barack Obama in the state by about 2 percentage points, and Republican Pat McCrory, who defeated Democrat Walter Dalton for governor.

Three races have not been finalized because they are being recounted. They are the 7th Congressional District, the 1st state Senate District and a District Court judgeship in three north-central counties.
