The State Boared of Elections denied a request from the Durham County Board of Elections to extend the state’s deadline to recount 90,000 votes. 
The Durham Board says the recount can’t be completed by SBOE mandate of 7 p.m. Monday. Elections officials say the process – estimated to cost about $35,000 – could move faster if more tabulating machines are made available from other counties.
The recount could finally settle the governor’s race between Governor Pat McCrory and Democrat Roy Cooper, the state’s attorney general. McCrory said Wednesday’s before the State Board of Elections meeting that it would not seek a statewide recount if the board ordered the Durham recount.
