Rules Review Commission Shuts Down State Board of Elections Last-Minute Attempt to Change the Rules

August 25, 2022 For Immediate Release

RALEIGH, N.C. – We agree with the decision reached by the Rules Review Commission. The rules proposed by the State Board of Elections would have made it harder for North Carolinians to observe elections and for election officials to carry out their duties. The NCGOP along with the RNC filed a letter objecting to the rules on the grounds that, among other things, the State Board attempted to bypass the standard rulemaking process but failed to meet the statutory requirements to do so.
