"state board elections" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"This is balance of power in Bloomberg television and a radio. I'm David Weston. A big issue in this year's election is going to be how we vote, and for that matter how we're going to find out the results. We call it counting the votes and we'll be doing a serious reports on election procedures around the country, particularly in the battleground states. Today we look at North Carolina where President Trump is heading just today. Welcome. Now a key official in the election process for the state. He's David Circosta and his chair of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, the body responsible for overseeing the elections and certifying results of Mr Circosta. Thank you so much for joining us. First of all, for those of us who are more familiar with secretary of State doing this sort of thing. Explain what the North Carolina State board elections is. What do you do? I had the power to oversee elections in North Carolina is given to aboard. The board is appointed by the governor in upon recommendations by the two major political parties, So there's five of us. We work together to make sure that the election is secure, accessible, safe, etcetera. Now, as I understand it, it's meant to be a bipartisan board that you can't have more than two members of the five from any given party s. Oh, it's correct Bipartisan. Although I saw overnight you lost a couple of Republicans securely lived with Democrats what happened there? We did. All five of us took a vote to make some common sense changes to our election procedures in light of the Koven 19 pandemic. After we voted unanimously to do that, those two members, I guess, had some regrets and decided to resign over that. Nevertheless, the governor Ah, I'm hopeful receive recommendations from the Republican Party soon and we'll get to new members in there and we'll keep plugging right along. Administering elections. Well, some partisanship is coming into so many elections around the country this year. What if you don't get the Republicans? Can you go ahead and act with just the Democrats? Well, we certainly have a quarter of the board to act. It would be my preference. Tohave Mohr voices at the table. But the election administration at the state level is also undergirded by 100 County election boards, and all of them are bipartisan in nature as well. So we've got plenty of Republicans, plenty of Democrats all looking to make sure that everything is fair in safe and accessible. So so a CZ. We look forward to the election process here. One of the issues I think that the divided your board was what happens if you have to sort of cure If I can use that word, fix up mail in ballots that really weren't done quite the right way. What is the issue there? And what is the challenge with male about you've already got, like a million requested right? Yes, certainly would we're seeing in North Carolina is Mohr absentee built by mail requests and we ever have before. Usually we get about 4% of our voters choosing this way to vote, and now we've got over a million requested and anticipate 30 to 50% of our voters choosing to vote by mail. Question is, How do you make sure that that voter can have confidence that their ballot is voted by them in the way in which we've done that traditionally is by having a witness sign the outside container envelope along with the voter. And that will remain the same process that we use in 2020, however, there sometimes when balance come back where the witness signature is missing, or the address of the witness is missing, And then the question is, how do we make sure to count that ballot? So what we'll do is we'll take up some follow up steps will send the voter herself on affidavit. They have to attest under penalty of perjury that the ballot they synthesis about they want counted. And we'll go ahead and authenticate that with our bipartisan county Board of elections and prepared for tabulation. There's a report actually on the bluebird just today that in fact, in North Carolina that the number of absentee ballots rejected for African Americans is higher. It's was something like 4%. And for others. Is that your experience? And if so, do you know why? Well, I You know, I didn't see that same report and we are concerned because we want to make sure that voting is accessible and secure for everyone. My supposition is that Traditionally, African Americans have used our absentee vote by mail process in lower numbers, and so the newness of this process might have caught up with some some more of those voters and others. The good news is we're going to make sure your ballot counts in this cure process in which we just Remedied the other day. We'll make that better for all voters. African American, another wife. One of the things that we're focusing on all around the country is what this might do in terms of delaying result gives a sense of your deadlines for when you have to get your ballot when you have to get it in when it gets counted. Well, so the good news in North Carolina is we start doing everything to authenticate your ballot if it's absentee vote by mail, five weeks ahead of the election, So every week board of Elections members in the county's get together in a bipartisan fashion, make sure that all these ballots that are coming into us are authenticated and ready to go. We will then do everything to prepare them for tabulation. Then tabulate them on Election Day. So in North Carolina on Election Day, you'll see the vast majority of votes already tabulated..

Despite this the North Carolina GOP is still saying that they're guy Mark how're should be seated as US congressman in a tweet today that in the best light is still pretty damning that row quote. I think you've got one innocent person in this whole thing, and he's the one getting the really bad end of the deal here. And that's Mr. Mark Harris that statement the GOP picked to convince the country of their candidates innocence was set at today's hearing another then Lisa bread.

We are now less than a year from the Iowa caucuses and the battle for the democratic presidential nomination is fully underway. Maybe the candidates are already on the campaign trail, particularly in the key early states of Iowa New Hampshire and South Carolina, then meeting voters, and honing their stump speeches testing out what works, and what doesn't like a stand up comedian who tries out material in a small club before embarking on a national tour. This is a laboratory if these candidates sharpen their message establish, what makes them different this president's day. Weekend was the most active in the twenty twenty Ray so far as candidates garnered big crowds and voters and local reporters started form opinions about what which what each of the candidates have to offer.

They're getting crowds of five hundred to eight hundred people out while ready.

I've I've worked in the state a lot. I know who these activists are what's interesting is who's turning out to these events. So right now, you got a lot of different candidates from different ideological backgrounds. But the people who I see coming out to these events don't necessarily fit those. I've seen core. Bernie Sanders activists out to see John Hickenlooper. Even though they're not gonna end up caucusing for him. I've seen county party folks out at Elizabeth Warren events, even though they think she's too far the left, but the interesting and nice thing is they're all finding something that they like about these candidates early on because right now, it's all still, you know, it's also pretty nice out there.

"I'm Audie Cornish in Washington. And I'm Ari Shapiro. Senate Republicans sharply rebuked, President Trump today on his foreign policy enough Republicans sided with Democrats to advance a resolution that opposes the immediate. Withdrawal of US troops in Syria and Afghanistan. The move was led by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell ISIS and Al Qaeda have yet today defeated at American national security interest require continued commitment to our mission. The president took many people by surprise in December. When he said he would withdraw troops from Syria arguing that the mission to defeat. Isis was already complete NPR's. Tim Mack joins us now from Capitol Hill, high Tim, hey, there, this is a resolution, it doesn't actually reverse the president's policy. So what what does it accomplish? You're right. The resolution can't force change in President Trump's policy regarding Syria or Afghanistan, but forty three Republicans out of fifty three total in the Senate voted to rebuke him on his Syria policy today, it signals to the president that many. Members of his own party are not with him when it comes to a swift withdrawal and disagree with his belief that ISIS has been defeated. Here's what Trump said in a video message. She posted on Twitter back in December. We have one against ISIS. We've beaten them and we've beaten a badly we've taken back the land. And now it's time for our troops to come back home. The unexpected announcement led to the resignation of the press the special presidential envoy for the global coalition to counter ISIS and secretary of defense Jim Mattis in many in Trump's own administration have said that ISIS isn't defeated that. There are still thousands of ISIS fighters in the area and the pose a risk to regional stability. So the president can do a lot of things in foreign policy unilaterally. But ultimately on your changes relating to funding relating to policy. He needs to maintain a coalition of support in congress, and congress is telling him quite strongly today. He doesn't have their support on a quick withdrawal from Syria or. Afghanistan. How significant is it that the top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell led this effort? Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell speaks for a large group of hawkish Republicans who have a standing disagreement with the president's foreign policy instincts. Here's here's Senator McConnell on the Senate floor today. United States is engaged in Syria and Afghanistan for one simple reason because our enemies are engaged. They're real dangerous to us and to our allies still remain in both these nations. So we must continue to confront them McConnell is most often an ally of President Trump's, but on this issue he felt strongly enough to lay down a marker on where he and the vast majority of Senator stained, and it's kind of becoming a recurring theme on issues like NATO on the murder of journalist Jamal kashogi on Russia. Sanctions. Republican lawmakers have repeatedly stood up to the president on his national security instincts. It really does seem like foreign policy is the one major area. Where Republicans aren't afraid to break with the president. Unlike issues, like health care or taxes or imagination. Are Republicans on the hill signaling that they are more willing to openly break with the president on other matters of foreign policy. You know, one issue to watch and one issue. I'm watching is going to be how congress reacts to US support for the Saudis in the ongoing war in Yemen. Republicans like Senator, Mike Lee and congressman Ken buck. They've joined with progressives. Like Senator Bernie Sanders invoked the War Powers Act to stop US military assistance from being provided to the Saudis back in December the Senate voted to do Justice. But the house didn't take it up. There's a good chance that the new house and Senate will address this issue and try to force the president's hand leading to a confrontation regarding US policy in Yemen later this year, NPR's, Tim, Mack speaking with us from the capital, thanks to him. Thanks a lot as the Senate has been debating pulling out US troops from Syria. More disturbing information has come out today about the conditions for some in that country, the World Health Organization says that in the last two months. At least twenty nine children have died as their families fled the conflict for camp in northeastern Syria. Most died from exposure to the cold on the trip or at the camp itself. NPR's Ruth Sherlock. Was there a few days ago? She's left Syria and joins us now on the line. Welcome back Ruth. Thank you. So the WHO is sounding a warning about the conditions for these thousands of people, right? Who are streaming into this camp. Can you tell us what it was like there? I mean, the conditions are just awful, you know, the US led offensive in northeastern Syria against ISIS is ongoing and as many as strikes going on and this is causing so many people to flee camp officials told us that as many as twenty three thousand people have arrived at the camp in just the last eight weeks, so that overwhelmed, and they just don't have the resources to cope some of the people who arrive at these camps have been working for days. They don't have the proper clothes. They arrived code and often wet site to the skin in it was raining when we were there and they were standing. In these long lines waiting for tense, but there aren't enough tents to go around. So some of these people have to then sleep outside exposed to the elements, and that's what's causing some of these terrible deaths that the World Health who got is Asian noted. But there's also another tragic side to this which is that people who do have he sing exposed to risks from those heaters the having to use these kerosene heaters that are very dangerous and consent tense alike. Last week a seven year old girl died in a tent fire in our who camped just a few days before we arrived there. And we've also heard about other similar cases where this happened, right? This is just one camp. What's the overall displacement situation? Well, as much as half of the country's population is is displaced intern lyrics or outside of the country that some eleven million people, and although there's been a trickle of people returning from neighboring Lebanon to Syria, the vast majority still think it's too dangerous to go back either because of the war, which is ongoing. Going. Ooh, because they face arrest by the Assad regime. Many are living in awful conditions similar to those that we saw in our who camp Syria is a country with multiple conflicts at this point. Right. There's the war against ISIS. That's being led by the US with local fighters. There's the civil war between the government and rebels. That's been going for nearly eight years where do these conflicts San now? Well, this currently own your little pockets of ISIS left. However, people are concerned that should the US withdrew or should the dynamics change on the ground again. Isis could still reemerge and at the same time in parallel, there's a civil war going on in the country. The Syrian government has the upper hand in that but rebel forces still control the northern province of whether millions of people and now the Syrian government and the Russians the allies have said they might plan to attack the area. Finally, you were in northeastern Syria. What were people thinking about this idea of the US withdrawal, people feel angry and betrayed kaddish? Officials say they've lost the lives of. Thousands of young men and women in the US backed fight against ISIS, and the US withdrew could now expose them to new threats a takeover by the Syrian regime or an attack by Turkey who says that the authorities the Kurdish authorities they're allied with militants that it sees as terrorists. But also, you know, Kurdish officials respect you said, privately they don't necessarily believe the withdrawal will happen as quickly as President Trump would like they understand the political divisions that are happening in the US over this. That's NPR's Ruth Sherlock Ruth. Thanks for speaking with us. Thank you. Nearly three months after the midterm elections. North Carolina's ninth district still doesn't have representation in the US house. That's because the state board elections there declined to certify the race to allegations of vote by mail fraud today. Governor ROY Cooper appointed new members to that state board and those five people will soon have to decide whether a whole new election is necessary NPR's, miles parks has more on November. Seventh two thousand eighteen Dan mccready thought is run for congress was over McCreadie ran as a democrat North Carolina's ninth district, he trailed Republican Mark Harris by nine hundred five votes, and he conceded the day after the election that seems like a lifetime ago now, oh, boy it's been such a whirlwind last couple months for like two years creating retracted his concession after the North Carolina State board of elections decided not to certify the race. Instead began investigation center on a political operative higher by the Harris campaign may McRae. Dallas Dallas had a reputation for helping vote by mail. Totals in the east part of the ninth district. Some voters have alleged that Dallas collected people's ballots, which is a legal North Carolina. There have also been questions about whether all the ballots. He allegedly collected were actually turned in. Here's McCreadie again. There was clearly a culture of corruption that was built by my opponent. Exactly how much he knew. And when he knew it, I hope that we'll be able to uncover during the investigation Harris was recently hospitalized and wasn't available for an interview in the past. He said he talked to Dallas often and even at a quote pastorally relationship with him. But he's repeatedly said he knew of no illegal activity, his campaign recently asked the state court certifies election. A judge rejected that request last week Harris and state Republicans argue that there aren't enough votes and question to overturn his nine hundred five vote margin. Anyway, but during the hearing an attorney for the state alluded to the possibility that investigators may have evidence that shows, otherwise, I don't know. Currently what's in that material? I think I can say with some confidence Howard that the material that. Is there certainly suggests that the number of disputed votes more than sufficiently calls this merging into question. The public will know a lot more about that evidence in the next few weeks. The newly appointed state board made up of three Democrats and two Republicans is expected to hold a public hearing took over what investigators have uncovered now what really knows what the evidence is being presented. Well, it show a large amount of fraud a little dog. That's Jerry Cohen a former special counsel for the North Carolina general semi he says what the board calls for a new election or certified Harris, the rules require a bipartisan vote, we have had our state board of elections. Call elections where there has been substantial evidence of fraud. We've had three local elections read out in the last three years, North Carolina. For example, if the board is deadlocked coins says the US house of representatives could dean the seat vacant in that case, the governor can call a new election, but Creedy the thought his candidacy was over months ago. Says he now fully expect. It's a new election to be called to me. I think this is a fight that needs fighting it rises above Republican or democrat or or even won election. I mean, this is about what it means to be an American his campaign has begun staffing and fundraising accordingly since early December..

"Year. Yeah. Of course. Where do you plan to move back? I don't have any plans on moving back for ballot was not legal because she listed a Matthews address that she left more than five years ago, but her ballot for Dan, McCreevy and other Democrats counted individuals that live out of the state, and if not lived here for years, I have no intention of coming back. They should not be voting. The values coalition believes this kind of fraud is common with both parties. Is it your opinion that Democrats and Republicans both are kind of taking advantage of this looking at the results. Republicans Democrats unaffiliated voters all seem to be not using this system. The way the statute with read many of the Mecklenburg absentee ballots in question. Also had date discrepancies. In other words of voter Mark, the ballot one day, but the witness put down a much different date law clearly says that when I Mark my ballot. I'm supposed to be sitting in two witnesses are what? Adultery. And when we see date discrepancies all ballots where people were signing or witnessing even before the ballot was mailed to them or weeks between when the witness and the voter it certainly is suspicious, and I would question why the county boards would accept those ballots. Well, the state mortar election says the law doesn't technically require matching dates between the witness in the voter, but certainly different dates should raise a red flag. I certainly think that the absentee ballot process and North Carolina should be looked at as we found with absentee voters. We talked with breaking the law involving the absentee ballots is actually quite easy though with people like Betty sailor who was listed as a witness on an absentee ballot by a friend without her knowledge. She says nobody really intended to break the law. I just don't want to cause any confusion, but I wasn't going to stay. In here to you. In a in my opinion, the absentee ballot process is just open fried and open to people just abusing the system and the values coalition thinks there are enough questionable absentee ballots to change the outcome of one race in the state House Democrat, Rachel hunt of Matthew's beat Bill Brawley, the Republican, but they think Brawley actually, one now need to point out state board. Elections tells me they will examine the concerns of the values coalition, but not likely to change the outcome of any races. Instead, they tell us they're more likely to end up just writing some absentee voters and warning them play by the rules and the future.

"And so when it comes to this idea of the government shutdown. The Democrats are expected to unveil legislation to keep it open. They won't offer any new money for the president's wall. Do you think that's a good strategy or should Democrats offer something, well, let me let me just say something right now, here's what I think is the frustration. You think you're negotiating with Donald Trump? And that's basically a fiction you were really negotiating with Laura Ingram. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the rest of the boys and girls at Fox News. That's the problem. There is no person sitting there named Donald Trump who's going to tell you what the answer is about the wall. There is no saving face for Donald Trump. Donald Trump will be able to tell you when he wanted to go. She ate with the Democrats win. The Fox News w GOP or whatever you wanna call. It gives him permission. That's part of the problem when you had Pelosi. There isn't a negotiating person on the other side of the table. So what is she supposed to do? I think she's going to basically so to stay. The course. This isn't about a wall. This is about who's pulling Donald Trump strength and the problem for Donald Trump is he has to get permission from them. And that's something that Nancy Pelosi can't basically can't abide by Arnie Arnesen. You said you've started off talking about New Hampshire tells a little bit about the activity. What do you expect particularly this year? We heard about Elizabeth Warren. But what else are you seeing? And what do you expect to see in this year? Well, I mean, obviously, we're going to be seeing a lot of what's going on with the presidential campaigns, which unfortunately is also going to sort of have a maybe not necessarily a positive effect on what happens with state legislation because to to a large extent, the presidential political to the sucks the energy out of politics, except here's the good news. I think we're gonna see things like this. We're gonna see putting a minimum wage Bill on the table. What you need to know about New Hampshire. We don't even have a New Hampshire. Minimum wage that means that the feds ever got rid of a minimum wage, we wouldn't have them. So that means we're still at seven twenty five all the surrounding states have not only their own minimum wage. They're raising it Massachusetts just raised it starting. I believe today. So I think you're gonna see conversations about minimum wage, you're gonna see conversations for example, about legalizing marijuana all the states around us have done it where so sort of, you know, living in the dark ages a lot of these conversations. However, well, also sort of I think parallel what's happening on the presidential campaign. So to a large. If we're talking about bringing the bottom up the minimum wage conversations there the whole idea about legalizing marijuana is not just state issue. Frankly, the fans have to sort of step into this. So I think you're gonna see those kinds of things begin to happen. And I think that that's important. And let's also be honest here. Climate change is real let me repeat this everyone. Climate change is real it is costing us billions and billions of dollars. I think my state is going to begin to look at how they need to begin to operate to address climate change that is going to be a huge issue nationally. And then last, but not least I am pessimistic about the economy. The rest of the world is beginning to see I was significant softening in a recession. We're not an island. We are really part of that sort of international conversation. You saw what happened with Wall Street? I think we're due for a recession. The problem is we have an enormous deficit, which means you can't turn to the feds when there's a recession so states you're going to have to prepare for that. And they're going to have to make. The right investments and make sure that their economies can sort of hold together. I think that's another conversation that will be having as he watched. What's happening with the economy? Talking people follow your show. They can go to W and H M dot org. My show is called the attitude with Arnie Arnesen, we stream live from twelve to one every day, we podcast, and if you want to know, what's happening nationally internationally, and especially at the presidential level. We will be absolutely keeping cats and everyone from data to come to bite into my next door. Neighbor Bernie Sanders. This is Arnie artists and joining us for our conversation. One of many opinion is we'll have on during the course of the morning happy new year to you and thanks for coming on new year. Oh, it's a pleasure. Happy new year. Everyone joining us from North Carolina. Mitch Koci of the Carolina journal. He is their senior political analyst good morning to you. Welcome and happy new year. Good morning and happy new year to you. I hope it's going to be a great plenty nineteen. That is is this a sense of optimism that you feel then perennially at optimist. I'm also the sort of a realist as well to know that we're ever going to get everything that we want. But I think if you look at the where things are headed there, certainly plenty of things to talk about the DeLuca polarization right here in North Carolina. We're still still dealing with the fact that we don't know who our whole complement of members of congress because of a fight in the ninth congressional district. But despite that, I always look ahead with it with a sense of optimism at the beginning of the New Year's because at the beginning of the year. You haven't seen all the stuff that would make you a pessimist yet? So if you had guideposts to point you to your way about this optimism that you might feel what would you look at? Well, I think the thing that you have to look at is that the United States if we're looking at the national picture is still a one of the dominant countries our economy has been rolling along fairly. Well, now, of course, with the the tariffs that President Trump supports that's been something that's been a hindrance of economic growth, but largely were still in pretty good shape. Although we have had troops fighting overseas in the Middle East for the large part. We have been spared for decades and decades from World War. The economy is still growing developing countries are still a growing by leaps and bounds. So in large respects, if you look at the world in twenty nineteen compared to the world say forty fifty sixty years ago, you have to say in almost every measure United States and the world are doing better. And I think that will continue even though there's still going to be some challenges. We're going to have to deal with a lot of problems, including the increased political polarization, which I. I think everyone sees as big problem. How do you factor? The current thing that we're talking about in Washington, the shutdown and to your sense of optimism. How does it really make an impact for those folks who live there in North Carolina the people that you talking associate with? At this point. We don't really see a whole lot of discussion about it on a whole lot of impact. And I think largely that's because this shutdowns partial shutdown took place near the end of a calendar year people are shutting things down. Anyway, they're shutting down the work for the year, not really dealing a whole lot with the government. I think if the or to see some major impacts from the shutdown it's probably going to take back now moving forward after day when everyone starts get back to work, and they noticed that some of the things that we dealt with the federal government. We're not seeing these open, but I think so far most people dealing with the holidays visiting grandma and grandpa, and for the kids dealing with that now once we launched to the new year people will start to see an impact if any from the checkout now, I think one of the things that people who like to use the shutdown as a way to to try to get people moving together to try to get some sort. Deals. One thing that could be a downside for them is that if the shutdown continues and people really don't see a major impact on their lives. Then the shutdown loses a lot of its value as a scare tactic and people will say, wait a minute. If we don't we could live our lives, just as we are without these government agencies operating at full staff and a full power. Do we really need off his government agencies? So there is that danger that if people continue to live their lives, and they don't see a major impact on the shutdown. They might say why do we just stuff anyway in DC, Mr. Koci this time of year? There's always stories about new laws and regulations that go into a place across the nation. What's the picture there in North Carolina? And what do you think about you after you're all these layers of new laws being put into place? Well, I think someone suggested one time that we might be better off if every new law had to come along with a repeal of two previous laws, and that might be something. Good in North Carolina. We've seeks some interesting new laws are some election changes. We'd also see and you've probably heard this on the national level. One of our one of our do laws has gotten a lot of publicity is this one that would ban those who sell non dairy milk from calling milk. And so several other states in the in the US go along with that same measure than the people are so soya milk or almond milk. When be able to call it not anymore. You look at that. You say do you really need a law for that? This is the type of thing that probably people could figure out on their own. We at the at the John Locke foundation and a Carolina journal up at supportive of trying to keep government in it in its limited spot where does the things that he needs to do any lead people to run their lives the way that they would like to otherwise. So when you see a bunch of laws come into place that can always create a problem. Our big story here, of course, in North Carolina, dealing with the national picture is what happens at our ninth congressional district. This is something where the congress is coming back as you very well now, you're just a couple of days, and we are going to have a nice district congressman because our state board elections, which now no longer exists that board of elections refused to certify the results in the night special district. One thing that we do know is that the comeback from the last session of congress. Robert pittenger is not coming back. He lost a primer. Mary election any just announced within the last couple of days, if there is a brand new election with a brand new primary care in North Carolina. He's not going to be he's not going to try to get his seat back. So we do know the one thing we know about district is no Robert pittenger. But there's still quite a bit of interest and concern about who is going to be. I the Reverend Mark Harris who was the Republican unseated picture, you know, primary appear to have one on election day by about nine hundred dotes over a democrat new damage creepy, but there's still a lot of uncertainty about what's happening because of some irregularities involving absentee ballots in the eastern part of that district. And as I said, we don't have right now in election sports, and there's a fight between our governor and our general assembly about whether the governor could set up a temporary elections for the Republicans who are lead, the general assembly say go you can't do that. You don't have the power to do it. The new brand new election sports by law checks. At the end of January. So what happens between now? And then is uncertain. We know that some leaders the new leadership in the house of representatives in in DC as said, it's not interested in seeing the Reverend Mark Harris says the new congressman because of all of the sensor, and that in terms of political stories is probably the main thing we're watching your right now. North Carolina, hyper locally vary in North Carolina. You have a democratic governor ROY Cooper has two years left in his term. How would you? How would you? I guess bracket that the first two years, and particularly what faces them in these next two years. The first two years were very tough ROY Cooper because Republicans held veto proof supermajority in both our state house and Senate. So basically, they would go along with governor. If it was something they already wanted to do if you put forward a proposal at that..

"This is KCRW seven forty five. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. An update now on the probe into election fraud in North Carolina's ninth congressional district. Investigators for the North Carolina State board elections have officially named Leslie McRae. Dallas as a person of interest Republican Mark Harris leads democrat Dama Creedy by just over nine hundred votes in the unofficial vote tally. But the election still hasn't been certified and mail in ballots are at the center of all of this NPR's, miles parks has been covering the story, and he joins us now in studio here miles. Hi there who is Leslie McRae Dulles. So he is a somebody who was being paid by Republican Mark Harris via a consulting firm. This investigation is really focused on what went on in Robeson county and bladen county which are on the east part of the ninth district. Mark Harris really outperformed their in specifically in vote by mail ballots compared to the number of ballots that were turned in by registered Republicans voters have alleged that Dallas went out. Actually gathered people's ballots, which is a legal in North Carolina. And that has people questioning whether those ballots were all turned in or whether they were manipulating some way. Basically, the state board of elections is looking into whether there are enough questions here to actually doubt the integrity of the election and potentially call for a whole new election, the ninth district, I mean leading up to this election miles talked about how fried almost never happens, very rare. But now we're talking about a congressional race potentially hanging on the balance because so in person voter fraud is what we've been talking about never ever happens. This is the kind of fraud that President Donald Trump, for instance, talks about somebody changed their hat to to be able to vote twice but absentee ballot fraud mail in ballot fraud does occasionally happen. I talked to Charles Stewart who's an election expert at MIT about this. The consensus is among people who study fraud carefully is that voting by mail is a much more fertile area for fraud. Dan voting in person. What's interesting, though, is that we're actually seeing vote by mail increase across the country the percent of people nationally who voted by mail and the two thousand sixteen presidential election actually tripled compared to just two decades prior because it's super convenient, right? Exactly. You waited in those long lines. Sometimes there are so many benefits. Here you mentioned the long lines. There's also the fact that you have weeks to fill out your ballot with your resources handy in the comfort of your own home, most richer, meet right, excuse me. Most research says that it does increase turnout, especially in low profile, non presidential elections Stewart told me that overall basically there's this trend going on a toward making voter voting easier and accessible for people and the amount of fraud were talking about when we talk about vote by mail fraud is still miniscule compared to the amount of ballots that are cast even say over the last decade. But still now that we've got this North Carolina case, I imagine some state election officials out there across the country are perhaps rethinking the accessibility to the experts. I talked to are really worried about that possibility possibility that election security hawks are basically use what's happening North Carolina as a way to clamp down on vote by mail ballots. But like you said voters really like this practice in every state where they've allowed people to. Do it more often people? Do it more often to the point where three states are actually vote by mail completely people can vote in person if they choose, but they every single registered voter in Washington, Oregon and Colorado actually receives a mail in ballot. So I talked to election directors in those states who basically said they wanna use North Carolina as.
