Britt Cobb Concedes Ag. Commissioner Race to Troxler

Britt Cobb probably did the right thing in conceding the still undecided race for Agricultural Commissioner to Troxler, especially as the State Board of Elections seemed poised to set a dangerous new precedent in these sorts of cases ... the consideration of 1,412 affidavits that Troxler had collected from among those 4,000 voters whose ballots were lost in Carteret County. Turning an election outcome into a contest of who can collect the most post-election affidavits from supporters seems about as bad an idea as having electronic voting devices with no paper trail.
