Nate DeGraff's N&R article on the continuing saga of the Parks/Wade election spat apparently didn't make the paper's 3:00a online cut. To find it at all you have to flip pages way back to B5 in the print edition. Nevertheless, the upshot of the latest wrangling over which of the two should ultimately occupy the long-disputed at-large County Commissioner seat is this: according to the state elections office, its not over. Here's what's next:
"Up to 376 voters could be asked to testify or submit affidavits as to where they lived around the time of the election."
That's enough former Commissioner Wade. You ran at large, which means every voter in Guilford County had the opportunity to vote for you last November. Every subsequent count of the ballots indicates you came up short.
So, precincts aside, unless this next desperate and expensive attempt for you to keep that seat on the Commission uncovers the unlikely scenario that 244 of the 376 disputed provisional ballots were cast by citizens of Forsyth or Davidson Counties, you were, unfortunately, defeated.
