McCrae Dowless was an American political operative and convicted felon from the state of North Carolina.
Dowless started working in politics in 2006, focused on voter turnout. He worked for Rex Gore’s campaign for Bladen County District Attorney in 2006.
Dowless was paid thousands of dollars for voter turnout efforts and, at times, oversaw the campaigns of eastern North Carolina politicians Wesley Meredith, Al Leonard, Ken Waddell, and William Brisson during the next few years.
Dowless served on Harold Butch Pope’s district attorney campaign in 2010.
In 2012, Dowless was appointed to the Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation Board.
In 2016, he was re-elected. Dowless also worked on Jim McVicker’s sheriff campaign in 2014.
McVicker won by a razor-thin margin, and complaints of mishandled absentee ballots surfaced.
Dowless worked for Todd Johnson in the Republican Party primary election for the United States House of Representatives in 2016. Johnson came in third place, behind Robert Pittenger and Mark Harris.
Dowless filed a complaint with the North Carolina Board of Elections after the election, alleging that Johnson’s opponents had tampered with absentee ballots.
As a result, two voters filed voter fraud allegations against Dowless.
