The North Carolina Republican Party is seeking to keep polls open late in a key congressional special election, but only in a single precinct.


Republican Dan Bishop is facing Democrat Dan McCready in the special election for North Carolina's ninth congressional district. The election is essentially a do-over from the 2018 midterms after reports of election fraud from the Republican campaign.

The GOP is seeking an extra one hour and forty-five minutes of voting in a single precinct.

WSOC-TV reporter Joe Bruno broke the news on Twitter.

A 6:15 meeting has been scheduled to consider the GOP's extension request.

The State Board of Elections countered that the polling place change was announced in July.
