Lumbee officials order another district election

Officials with the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina ordered another election for a tribal council district after numerous problems were reported.

Councilman Montford Dial had won re-election last week over challenger Danita Locklear by just two votes. But the elections board set a new election because one of the poll locations was improperly moved with Dial's help on election day.

The elections board heard a number of other complaints that could prompt a revote in another tribal council district.
