County Board of Elections Supervisor Kristen Scott said she is not expecting any challenges to surface following the canvassing of primary ballots today.
The updated results posted to the state Board of Elections include absentee and mail ballots received timely and postmarked on or before the election and received by May 11. The update includes provisional ballots as well.
The May 8 primary saw incumbents for the office of sheriff, county commissioners, county school board and district attorney win.
The incumbent commissioners will face a challenge from Republican John Whichard in November.
Meanwhile, Scott said Silver, to face incumbent Sheriff Wes Tripp as an independent, will need 1,502 signatures of Halifax County registered voters to be put on the November ballot.
Scott said there has not yet been a count of how many signatures Silver got on his petition, which he turned in on the day of the primary.
The board uses a petition module to enter names to determine whether those signing the document are registered voters in the county. Scott said Silver will not be considered an official candidate until the petition is certified.
