Can’t get enough of election-related coverage? You’re in luck.

On Wednesday at 8:30 a.m., members of the Richmond County Board of Elections will begin recounting the ballots for North Carolina Supreme Court Associate Justice.

The race between incumbent Justice Cheri Beasley and challenger Mike Robinson fell within the margin of error. Between early voting and election day turnout, Beasley received 1,239,222 votes (50.11 percent) to Robinson’s 1,233,795 (49.89 percent). As of now, a mere 5,427 votes separate the two candidates.

Officials in all of North Carolina’s 100 counties must complete the recount by 5 p.m. Thursday. The deadline demands emergency meetings of elections boards throughout the state.
