The Clay Aiken voting saga has apparently come to an end.
The Wake County Board of Elections decided at today's preliminary hearing that there's probable cause that Aiken wasn't qualified to vote in the Oct. 6 school board elections. But elections officials decided not to pursue the matter further because Aiken submitted a letter today withdrawing his voter registration.
In a blog post Tuesday, Aiken said he was making the change "rather than get into a technical dispute." Wake GOP Chairman Claude Pope had filed the challenge, citing how Aiken has a home in Chatham County but used his mother's North Raleigh address on his voter registration.
Aiken has said he'll continue to speak out against the new Wake County school board's efforts to end the diversity policy.
