Rep. Justice: Voters cheated by ballot mess up


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — State Rep. Carolyn Justice says voters have been cheated. Justice says she received a called from Rep. Danny McComas (R-New Hanover) saying that the 16th District House candidates were completely left off the ballots at the Northeast Library in Wilmington.

Justice is trying to defend her 16th District seat against Pender County Commissioner F.D. Rivenbark.

Justice says it is not only disappointing to her and her campaign but to the voters.

“The American citizens have been cheated,” Justice said. “There’s no way for this to be corrected.”

Justice says she asked to speak with New Hanover County Elections Director Bonnie Williams about being left off the ballot, but has yet to get a call back from any officials about the situation.

Justice says new ballots were delivered to the Northeast Library polls this morning.
