Board of Elections Status As Of May 27, 2017 Thank You Governor Roy Cooper For Continuing To File Lawsuits


Cooper has already sued lawmakers over other measures they passed in the December special session, including merging the State Board of Elections and the State Ethics Commission, requiring Senate confirmation of his cabinet secretaries and sharply reducing the number of political appointments he could make in state agencies.

A three-judge panel ruled in his favor on the elections-ethics and political appointments issues but said the cabinet confirmations process doesn’t violate the state constitution. After lawmakers tweaked the elections-ethics combination to meet the judges’ concerns and passed it over his veto, he filed a second lawsuit over the matter.
