Election Day from Hell

Record #:
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.
