Board of Elections addresses election discrepancies, voting process

Moore County election results have come in.  It is considered an off-year election in that the only races are municipal races. There is a total of 56 candidates running in 11 separate races.

Several towns have incumbents running unopposed. Aberdeen Mayor Robbie Farrell and Robbins Mayor Lonnie English are running unopposed, as is David Seiberling, running to fill an unexpired Board of Commissioners seat in Cameron. Additionally, George Blackwell, Jr., Matthew Callahan, and Alphonso Mosley, Jr. are running to fill 3 commissioner’s seats in Vass.
