According to reports from WECT, local boards of elections are set to meet between Nov. 10 and 13 to approve the remaining provisional and absentee ballots. Official election results are expected to be reported following those meetings.
North Carolina was seen as a battleground state this election given the close makeup of republicans and democrats residing in the state and its most populous counties.
