“Audit finds 5oo cases of illegal votes in NC; Undermines GOP claims of widespread fraud”

AP:

North Carolina elections officials found that about 500 ineligible voters cast ballots in the 2016 general election — but not enough to change the outcome of any race, according to an audit released Friday.

The State Board of Elections report said the 508 cases — the vast majority active felons — represented a small fraction of the 4.8 million ballots cast. The report didn’t include any evidence of coordinated fraud, and many of the voters claimed to be confused about their eligibility.

The audit’s findings contradict Republican claims that voter fraud runs rampant in North Carolina.
