North Carolina board orders new election in disputed congressional race

Friday 21:50 GMT

North Carolina’s elections board has ordered a new election in the last undecided congressional race from the 2018 midterms after reviewing evidence that the contest was tainted by absentee ballot fraud.

The move came after the Republican candidate Mark Harris abruptly dropped his bid to be declared the winner and instead called for a new election, after investigators found evidence of ballot fraud by political operatives working for him.
