Thursday: Board of Elections to hear appeal from Berger challenger

The state Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement could decide Thursday if Jen Mangrum was rightfully disqualified from her attempt to unseat Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger (R-Rockingham).

As previously reported by NC Policy Watch’s Billy Ball, Mangrum’s residency in Berger’s district was challenged by Republicans and a panel of election officials from Berger’s Senate District 30 voted on party lines to oust her.

Mangrum, a UNC-Greensboro professor and former elementary school teacher, appealed the decision and now it’s scheduled for a hearing before the full State Board on Thursday.

The State Board will also take up vacancy appointments to the county boards of elections and the establishment of a special filing period for a Superior Court district 15A in Alamance County. The vacancy was created after Judge Jim Roberson announced he would retire June 30.

The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday in a board room at 430 N. Salisbury St. in Raleigh. It is open to the public or they can listen in to the proceedings by calling 914-614-3221 (code: 689-691-678).

See the full agenda below.
