NC Independent Voter Files Lawsuit Against Law that Bars Him from Serving on Board of Elections

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this post.

North Carolina Law does not Permit anyone to Serve on the State Board of Elections, or a County Board, unless that Voter is a Registered Member of one of the two Largest Parties in the State. It allows only the State Chairs
of the Democratic and Republican Parties to Nominate to be appointed as Members of the Bipartisan State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement, and Individuals for the State’s 100 County Boards of Election.

On June 7th, Michael Crowell, an Independent Voter and an Attorney, Sued on his own Behalf to Overturn that Law.

Crowell v North Carolina, m.d., 1:17cv-515, in North Carolina Middle District Court.
