On December 22, 2011, the State Board of Elections met and unanimously directed staff to inform interested members of the public that no matching /rescue funds will be distributed for appellate judicial elections from the North Carolina Public Campaign Fund pursuant to the decision in Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s Freedom Club PAC v. Bennett, 131 S.Ct. 2806 (2011). In addition, the special reporting schedule set forth in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 163-278.66(a) in order to facilitate disbursement of matching funds will not be required.  Any questions may be directed to Campaign Finance at campaign.reporting@ncsbe.gov

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT REPORTING COMPLIANCE: The State Board of Elections sends Notices of Noncompliance to committees that fail to file required reports. Committees that remain delinquent after a Notice of Noncompliance has been issued may have their Active Status terminated, rendering them ineligible to spend or raise money toward an election. Notices of Noncompliance and Termination of Active Status letters are public record and are found on our website as part of a committee's Campaign Report Image Search results.
