Resolution of the Robeson County Republican Party
WHEREAS, the Robeson County Board of Elections has certified the results of both the 2018 Primary & General Elections for the 9thCongressional District; and
WHEREAS, The North Carolina State Board of Elections has refused to certify the results for the 9thCongressional District; and
WHEREAS, every political race in both Bladen & Robeson Counties has been certified using the same ballots in question by the North Carolina State Board of Elections; and
WHEREAS, there has been no public evidence that enough ballots in question would alter the race and similar concerns were expeditiously dismissed by the State Board in 2016; and
WHEREAS, Robeson county will lack representation in the United States House of Representatives in the 116thCongress beginning January 3rd, 2019 as hearings have been delayed until after Congress is seated harming the citizens of our county; and
WHEREAS, no local protests have been filed in Robeson County by any candidate for the 9thCongressional District.
NOW THEREFORE, The Robeson County Republican Party by vote of the entire Executive Committee hereby adopt the following resolution:
RESOLVED, The Robeson County Republican Party hereby respectfully requests that the North Carolina State Board of Elections immediately certify the results of the 9thCongressional District just as every county board of elections within the 9thCongressional District has already certified the results.
