BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- An update on the investigation into allegations of vote buying in Bladen County. County Board of Elections Chair Ray Britt says state investigators have found no evidence to support those allegations. The candidates and campaign workers who were implicated, including McCrae Dowless and Levi Roberts, have been cleared of any wrongdoing.

State elections investigators are still looking into other allegations, including potential problems with absentee ballots. They have forwarded some of their findings on to criminal investigators at the state level for further review.

SBOE Investigator Marshall Tutor says he is confident some issues have been resolved, and Bladen County residents will have a better election system when it comes time to vote in November.
