North Carolina State Board of Elections Gains its Ninth Member, who is an Independent

Ballot Access News

The new law concerning the composition of the North Carolina State Board of Elections says the board must have four Republicans, four Democrats, and a member who is neither. The process for choosing the ninth member is: the original eight members choose two individuals, and then the Governor picks one of them. On March 21, the Board settled on two independents, and the same day, the Governor chose one. See this story. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the link.
