For at least a decade, allegations of cheating have swirled around elections in rural Bladen County, N.C. Some people in town point fingers at a Black advocacy group, the Bladen County Improvement Association, accusing it of bullying voters, tampering with ballots and stealing votes outright. These accusations have never been substantiated, but they persist.

Reporter Zoe Chace went to Bladen County to investigate what’s really going on. From the makers of Serial and The New York Times, a five-part series about allegations of election fraud — and the powerful forces that fuel them.

This podcast may use tracking and attribution and dynamic content insertion

Stats: Statistics are produced by Simplecast, Podtrac, Podsights and Chartable to help The Improvement Association to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Simplecast, Podtrac and Chartable are IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: Podsights and Chartable or their partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - they may spot a device that downloaded an episode of The Improvement Association later visited the website of an advertiser; or they may track that a device that listened to The Improvement Association also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Simplecast may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. The Improvement Association may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

The Improvement Association is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
