The Buncombe County Board of Elections has set a preliminary hearing for an Asheville Tea Party challenge of the registration of 182 voters the group says no longer live at the addresses they gave the elections office, the Asheville Citizen-Times reported Monday.
The group, along with the Raleigh-based Voter Integrity Project, filed the challenges March 14.
The group on Friday said 79 active voters and 104 inactive voters make up the challenges it filed. (One of those challenges was later dropped, lowering the total to 182.) It said 39 of the registrations it has challenged are tied to voters who voted in 2012.
