• Report: Election chairman asked brother's advice on voting changes

    Updated:

    WATAUGA COUNTY, N.C. - Critics are raising new questions about Watauga County's controversial efforts to change voting at Appalachian State University.

    The Board of Elections recently abandoned their idea to combine three voting precincts.

    Critics say the idea was influenced by the election chairman's brother.

    They told news partners at the Watauga Democrat it shouldn't have been allowed since the brother is a county attorney.

    The chairman said he just wanted advice from someone he trusts.
