Recount for Bolton mayor race Monday


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — It may be more than a week since Election Day, but the election process is not over yet. In Columbus County, there’s still some double-checking to be done for mayor in Bolton.

Columbus County Elections Director Carla Strickland says the Board of Elections will do a discretionary recount of the votes for mayor on the Bolton precinct ballots. The recount is Monday at 5 p.m. at the Board of Elections office. Strickland says absentee and One-Stop Voting ballots will not be recounted, as there is only a question about the precinct ballots.
