Elections, Ethics Board will meet Wednesday to name nominees for 9th seat

Eight members of the newly appointed State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement will meet for the first time at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Josh Lawson, general counsel for the agency, tweeted out notice of the meeting Monday morning.

Gov. Roy Cooper on Friday appointed members to the Board, which he has left vacant for the past year while pursuing litigation over the laws restructuring the agency. Litigation is ongoing.

The eight members consist of four Republicans and four Democrats, and there is a ninth seat that remains open for a member unaffiliated with either party.

At its first meeting, the Board is expected to name two nominees for Cooper to appoint to the vacant seat. The meeting is open to the public and will take place at 430 N. Salisbury Street.
