An initial hearing is set for the challenge filed against a candidate for the Wayne County Board of Commissioners.
The election protest challenging Bevan Foster’s victory in the March 3rd Primary Election was filed by three Goldsboro residents; Linda Harper, Zachary Lilly and Joy Brown. The petition alleges Foster does not live at his registered District 3 address of 610 Deveraux Street in Goldsboro, and cites three instances where official election-related mailings to Foster’s Deveraux Street address were returned to sender. The election protest goes on to ask for a new election for the District 3 seat.
The Wayne County Board of Elections has now scheduled a preliminary consideration of the election protest during an over-the-phone meeting set for next Wednesday, May 27, at 4 PM. Full details on the meeting can be found here.
