Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Mike Munger has 2.81 percent of North Carolina's vote, according to unofficial results that include 17 of 100 counties completely reported and 53 counties partially reported.
If Munger, who serves as chair of Duke's political science department, wins at least 2 percent of the vote, the Libertarian party can remain on the state's ballot until 2012.
The unofficial results show Democratic Lt. Gov. Bev Perdue slightly ahead of Republican Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory by about 3 percentage points.
