UPDATED: State Board Appoints 100 county boards of elections, recognizes the N.C. Green Party

posted on

Updated: The latest County Board appointments list is available here.

The Bipartisan State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement on March 27 appointed four members to each of the 100 county boards of elections and unanimously recognized the North Carolina Green Party as an official political party in the state.

Recognition of the Green Party means voters now have another choice of party affiliation when registering to vote. Voters may register with the Democratic, Green, Libertarian or Republican parties, or they can register as unaffiliated. It also means that Green Party candidates, chosen by convention in 2018, will appear on ballots in this year’s Nov. 6 general election.

The State Board is updating and will distribute new voter registration forms that include the Green Party option. Until then, voters may register with the Green Party by checking the “Other” box and writing “Green” on the line in “Political Party Affiliation” section of the voter registration application.
