Live updates: North Carolina holds a special election



Polls have closed in a special election for North Carolina's 9th Congressional District.

Democrat Dan McCready is facing off against Republican Dan Bishop.

Why this matters : McCready, a Marine Corps veteran , appeared to suffer a narrow defeat ̵

1; by fewer than 1,000 votes – to Republican Mark Harris last November, but evidence of ballot fraud by a GOP operative connected with Harris surfaced before the results could be certified.

State investigators' long inquest drew national attention and, after a dramatic February finale, the North Carolina election board voted to re-run the race. Harris stood down almost immediately and Republican voters subsequently nominated Bishop.

In addition to the Bishop-McCready race, voters in the state's 3rd Congressional District will choose between Republican state Rep. Greg Murphy and Democratic former Greenville Mayor Allen Thomas. The special election in the Republican-leaning district was called after GOP Rep. Walter Jones, who had represented the district since 1995, died in February.
