Under N.C.G.S. § 163-22, the State Board of Elections has general supervision over the primaries and elections in North Carolina. It also may make rules regarding elections and campaign finance provided they do not contradict the law. When rules are proposed, a public comment period and a public hearing about the rule takes place.
The Rules Review Commission reviews rules that the State Board adopts for compliance with the requirements in Chapter 150B. For more about the Rules Review Commission, including a list of date of their upcoming meetings, visit the NC Office of Administrative Hearings.
Associate General Counsel Kelly Tornow is the State Board's rulemaking coordinator.
