Speaker Moore and Elections Chair Rep. Grey Mills Exploring Potential Legislative Action to Keep President Donald Trump on Ballot in NC

This week, the North Carolina Board of Elections considered a challenge to former President Donald Trump’s ability to be on the ballot in the 2024 election. While the State board delayed consideration of the matter in a vote of 4-1, Democrats may bring the matter up again before the general election.

Speaker Moore and Elections Chair Rep. Grey Mills have released the following statement:

“In light of recent efforts by activists both here in North Carolina and other, we believe it is necessary for us to explore legislative action to ensure the Democratic majority on the NC State Board of Elections does not have unchecked authority to remove a major political party’s nominee from the ballot. North Carolina will be a critical state in the upcoming presidential election and removing a leading candidate in this race like President Trump would be an affront to democracy.”
