North Carolina Panel Postpones Board of Elections Disbandment
Last week, a panel of three judges granted Gov. Roy Cooper’s request for the state to temporarily refrain from overhauling the elections board until his active lawsuit is resolved.
Cooper proposed the constitutional separation of powers are overlooked in a new General Assembly law.
If Cooper fails to win the suit, and the law is not overturned, the five-member state Board of Elections will be reorganized into a team of eight under the state Ethics Commission.
