It was pretty clear after Worth Hill’s sweeping Tuesday night re-election that any official inquiry into challenger Roy Taylor’s residency would be moot. But, for the record, Board of Elections chair Carol Anderson issued a statement through the county today to that effect:

Worth Hill has prevailed in the election for County of Durham Sheriff by a margin of 60,667 to 16,466. In light of this result, the need for the Board of Elections to conduct a hearing on the protest to the candidacy of Roy Taylor for this Office has been rendered unnecessary and will not proceed as previously scheduled.

Chair, Board of Elections
