Apparently and according to ASA-NC, the ACLU did contact ASA-NC to inquire and determine if there was a problem, but the election office completed the verification within the statutory maximums. While there is no legal problem, ASA-NC's contention is that the election office could have completed the verification sooner...hence the foot dragging.
