RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina Democratic Party leader has formally asked the State Board of Elections to investigate inaccuracies in voter registration application mailers sent by a conservative-leaning advocacy group.
Party Executive Director Casey Mann filed a complaint Monday with the board, alleging the Americans for Prosperity Foundation must have known several details on the mailer were false or conflicting and would discourage voting this fall. Mann’s complaint suggests the mailers could be subject to a low-grade felony.
Foundation state director Donald Bryson didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday afternoon. But Bryson has said the group is addressing what he called a “few minor administrative errors” in the mailers.
The mailers gave conflicting information on the registration deadline and where to return the applications.
