Full Elections, Ethics Board meeting today to decide on Green Party, appoint local members

The full State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement will meet today via teleconference to get started on a backlog of work that needs to get done before early voting, in less than a month.

Gov. Roy Cooper appointed the nine board members within a week of House Bill 90 becoming law, which details some of the structure of the Board. He is still pursuing litigation over the bill and Senate Bill 68, which was a rewrite of another measure creating the Board.

Eight of the Board’s nine members, four Democrats and four Republicans, met last week to name two nominees to the vacant seat: Damon Circosta and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Burley Mitchell. Cooper appointed Circosta later the same day.

Among other things, the Board is expected to act on a petition for the recognition of the North Carolina Green Party and appoint members to local county boards of elections, which are moving from three-member boards to four members: two Democrats and two Republicans.

Members of the public can dial in to the public meeting by calling 415-655-0060 and using code 448-996-254. Meeting documents can be found here.
