RALEIGH, N.C. The State Board of Elections today established a special filing period for all single-member district contests for Wake County Board of Education, beginning tomorrow. A new filing period became necessary after a federal court rejected district lines for the county's board of commissioners and board of education. Wake County elections officials were ordered yesterday to proceed with elections under previous district lines adopted in 2011.
Individuals wishing to file for any one of nine seats on the Wake County Board of Education must do so between noon on Thursday, August 11 and noon on Wednesday, August 17 at the Wake County Board of Elections office at 337 South Salisbury Street in Raleigh.
The North Carolina State Board of Elections is the state agency charged with overall responsibility for administration of the elections process and campaign finance disclosure in North Carolina. The office of the State Board of Elections works in conjunction with County Board of Elections offices to ensure that elections are conducted lawfully and fairly.
