RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The final counts for North Carolina’s fall election are finally over.

The State Board of Elections meeting Thursday in Raleigh certified results of close elections for state auditor and a House seat that underwent recounts last week.

The results show Democratic incumbent Beth Wood winning by more than 6,000 votes over Republican Chuck Stuber from 4.5 million ballots cast. And GOP Rep. Susan Martin of Wilson defeated Democrat Charlie Pat Farris by less than 200 votes.

The board last week certified results for scores of races under their authority, including governor, U.S. Senate and judgeships. The panel’s decision set up the awarding of North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes to Republican Donald Trump next Monday.
