Gov. Cooper's Democrat-Controlled Board Seeks to Undermine Integrity of Upcoming Election

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Lt. Governor Dan Forest releases the following statement:

    "Tomorrow, the Democrat-controlled State Board of Elections will ask the Rules Review Commission for unprecedented power to alter election rules to their benefit. If approved, these measures would let the Board of Elections accept ballots days after the election, delay vote counting, suspend due process and ignore legitimate challenges. None of these provisions protect public health. The State Board of Elections, appointed by Gov. Cooper, is simply trying to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to undermine the integrity of our elections. These rule changes cannot be allowed to move forward."
