Finally, a State Board of Elections (and Ethics Enforcement) Put in Place

While not conceding his legal contention that the state’s new legislatively declared Board os Elections and Ethics Enforcement is unconstitutional, Gov. Roy Cooper has now appointed eight members (four Democrats, four Republicans; six men, two women) to the board in order to offer some semblance of order as primary elections get underway for 2018. The newly constituted board will appoint its ninth member, who must be neither a registered Democrat or Republican. In today’s News & Observer, Anne Blythe offers details on this latest shift in election management.
