Voters in North Carolina went to the polls, Tuesday, to decide the fate of the nation's only open congressional seat.
Democrat Dan McCready is in a tossup battle against conservative state Sen. Dan Bishop.
Accusations of election ballot fraud involving Republican Mark Harris led to the results of last year's district nine race to be thrown out.
"I was surprised by Harris, yes, being a pastor. That he kind of threw mud at being a Christian," Republican voter Sandy Blackwell said.
Blackwell didn't let last year's race deter him from voting for Republican Dan Bishop. But Bob Southern, also a Republican, cast his vote for Democrat Dan McCready.
"I'm very much for Dan McCready. I wanted to vote for him. The other thing is I am a registered Republican, but I am fed up with the agenda of the republican party and would vote for anybody running as a democrat right now," he said.
As voting went on, North Carolina Republicans claimed election officials in one county provided the wrong address for a voting precinct ahead of a hotly contested special congressional election.
But state election officials say voters were notified of the address change weeks ago.
North Carolina GOP Executive Director Jonathan Sink said in a statement that the Union County Board of Elections failed to update a precinct address in its polling district list and on its website for "at least six weeks."
But state election officials said in a statement that the county mailed notices of the change to all registered voters on July 29.
