This article reports that a judge canceled the special election of agriculture commissioner in Carteret County, North Carolina, that would have settled the drawn-out affair. The turmoil began when 4,438 votes were lost in the November 2, 2004 election. The mistake was blamed on misinformation about the storage capacity of the voting machine. Following recounts, Republican Steve Troxler led his Democratic opponent Britt Cobb by 2,287 votes. The State Elections Board opted to hold the election in just one county rather than calling a statewide election.
