Public Comment Portal: SBE Administrative Rule on Executive Director Emergency Powers, 08 NCAC 01 .0106
G.S. 163-27.1 authorizes the Executive Director of the State Board of Elections to exercise emergency powers to conduct an election in a district where the normal schedule for the election is disrupted by a natural disaster, extremely inclement weather, or armed conflict, and to adopt rules describing the emergency powers and the situations in which the emergency powers will be exercised. The proposed temporary rule would amend her emergency powers to clarify that a catastrophe arising from natural causes includes a disease epidemic or other public health incident that makes it impossible or extremely hazardous for elections officials or voters to reach or otherwise access the voting place or that creates a significant risk of physical harm to persons in the voting place, or that would otherwise convince a reasonable person to avoid traveling to or being in a voting place.

Public comment on the proposed amendment will be accepted from Thursday, March 19, 2020, through Monday, April 20, 2020.
