2016 Primary Elections Results for Macon County
Live Coverage

**update** 11:12 pm on March 15, 2016 

Readers have reported several errors in the results, most often the error is a simple transposing of numbers in some races, and before the Board of Elections consented to handing out paper copies, I made other errors in transcribing from paper to computer in my haste. I apologize for any errors and will try to fix them as soon as I can. --Bobby



Election Coverage Title Card




Macon Media will be attempting the first ever live video coverage of the election results, paying close attention to the races involving local candidates. The races that will be highlighted are the Republican primaries that include the race for the 120th NC House District seat that Kevin Corbin (Macon County) and Elliott Southworth (Cherokee County) are seeking. The other two races are the race for the District II County Commissioner that pits Karl Gillespie against Ron Haven and the District III County Commissioner race that is a three-way contest between incumbent Paul Higdon and challengers Greg Boyer and Emmanuel (Manny) Carrion. All the local Democratic races feature candidates that are running unopposed, so those races will not be covered. Since this is a one man show, the local Presidential results will not be posted unless the precincts are slow in coming in, and I do not expect any time to breathe during the live coverage.

Macon Media will attempt to stream live video from the bowels of the county courthouse. Internet access is notoriously sketchy down there, so don't be too disappointed if the video is not working.

Live text results will be posted here in reverse chronological order so the most recent results will always be displayed just below the video player. The results will also be mirrored on Facebook on the Macon Media New Weather and Information page and on the Macon Media twitter account under the hashtag #2016Macon [Example of search String]





Live streaming video by Ustream



**7:51 pm**  The video feed went down because the internet speed downstairs got bogged down an is too slow.

I apologize for the problems and will not be attempting to relaunch.
