North Carolina | It's Over in NC

In a totally expected move, the North Carolinian Electors through their 15 Votes to President Bush.

William Trotter (R-9th district elector) stated, “It’s a great historic occasion, one that’s very important to me, to get to vote for our President George W. Bush.”

While Trotter cast a vote for the Charlotte area, Judy Keener
(R-13th district elector) cast the first-ever vote for North Carolina’s new 13th Congressional district.

“We should be very thankful for our process and the freedom that
we have to do all this," Keener said.

In somewhat related news, the voting machine problem in Carteret County, which should end up causing a complete re-vote for the position of Secratary of Agriculture, has been discussed in terms of a complete overhaul of the way voting is performed in NC. The Commission is looking for a more uniform system.
