Durham election officials have been ordered to do a machine recount on more than 90,000 ballots after technical challenges on election night. Late Thursday, the State Board of Elections gave Durham a Monday deadline to complete that recount.

The recount is expected to help settle the still-undecided governor's race between incumbent Gov. Pat McCrory and his challenger Roy Cooper.

Also, a three-judge panel of a federal court this week ordered the North Carolina legislature to redraw their district lines and hold a new election next year. The court found 28 of the state house and senate districts were unconstitutionally racially gerrymandered.
