Abstract:
Durham and the state of North Carolina experienced issues in carrying out the election of 1990. Voter intimidation, criminal behavior, long voting lines, and questionable tactics were used to target areas that were predominately black and Democratic. In Durham, more than half of the city’s voting machines stopped working for several hours on election night. This frustrated many voters and the Democratic party who question whether the process was fair and the results trustworthy.

Abstract:
On election night, more than half of Durham’s voting machines stopped working forcing voters to endure two and three hour lines. While discouraging, volunteers and Harvey Gantt helped the democratic process of voting go on. Gantt ultimately lost the election to Senator Jesse Helms, but helped pass out paper ballots to voters all over Durham.
