North Carolina Proposed Constitutional Amendment Concerns Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement
North Carolina will vote on a constitutional amendment to establish an eight-member Bipartisan Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement in November.
A 2017 law establishing an eight-member board was struck down by the North Carolina Supreme Court because it reduced the governor’s executive authority and failed to provide representation for unaffiliated voters.
If the amendment passes, majority and minority leaders of the legislature would nominate potential members from which the governor would choose.
