JUNE 15, 2021:  Report on Bd of Elections proposed rules changes:            Pursuant to G.S. § 150B-21.2, notice is hereby given that the State Board of Elections intends to amend the permanent rule cited as 08 NCAC 06B .0103. The full text is attached to this notice and is also available here. This notice is posted on the State Board of Elections website, https://www.ncsbe.gov/about-elections/legal-resources/rulemaking.

In accordance with G.S. § 150B-20 and 08 NCAC 15 .0101, Joshua Lawson, a registered voter and resident of Wake County, submitted a rulemaking petition to the State Board of Elections on March 26, 2021. The petition requested that the State Board engage in rulemaking to amend the rule regarding the arrangement of official ballots to include the word “Nominee” after the candidate’s name and party designation, and to include “Unaffiliated Candidate” after the candidate’s name when a candidate qualifies by petition to run unaffiliated. Separate from the rulemaking petition, the State Board is proposing several other changes to simplify the rule and to clarify the order of offices to be listed on the ballot in accordance with G.S. § 163-165.6. 

The State Board of Elections voted in an open meeting on May 14, 2021, to submit the proposed text of 08 NCAC 06B .0103 to the Office of Administrative Hearings for publication in the North Carolina Register, and the agency invites public comment on this matter from Tuesday, June 15, 2021, through Monday, August 16, 2021.
