RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Ballot counting is essentially complete in all but two of North Carolina’s counties and Democrat Roy Cooper

still has a more than 10,000-vote lead over Republican Gov. Pat McCrory. A State Board of Elections official said Thursday some

counties are making minor adjustments in vote tallies this week in light of a board directive. The biggest potential tabulation

changes are in Durham and Bladen counties.
