RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Next week marks the start of a new round of elections in the nation’s last unresolved congressional race after November’s results were thrown out because of concerns about ballot tampering and state officials called for a do-over.

North Carolina elections board officials set May 14 for a primary election with the general election to follow on Sept. 10. 

The new election resulted after testimony that a political operative working for Republican candidate Mark Harris in rural Bladen County collected mail-in ballots, making votes vulnerable to being changed or discarded.
