They found another ballot for Yancey that had previously been ruled spoiled. It’s a tie.

I really hope it’s not just the R’s saying “surely there’s at least one more ballot we can question”, because that would be typical.
Election officials could call up that voter with the “spoiled” ballot and ask, what was your thinking here? (What were you thinking?!?) Let the person cast a verbal ballot.

It’s a secret ballot; it doesn’t have the voter’s name on it:

Yeah, that’s true. I just like the idea of asking a person, in essence, who they want to win the seat and which party they want to control the state House.
