From a State Board of Elections news release today we learn that:
The House today approved its version of Senate Bill 744, allocating funds for additional investigators at the State Board of Elections.
The measure now moves to the Senate for reconciliation.”
The release quoted Kim Strach, Executive Director of the SBE, as saying, “Additional investigators will allow our Agency to more quickly resolve alleged violations and review evidence of voting irregularities.”
If the measure is approved it will allocate three additional investigator positions for the SBE. This is welcome news to the agency charged with investigating violations of election law in North Carolina and until recently only had two investigators who covered the entire state.
