NASHVILLE — The current chair of the Nash County Board of Elections will serve another term.

Kelly Shore will continue as leader of the local elections board, according to a July 19 press release from Gov. Roy Cooper, who announced appointments for the chair position of all 100 county elections boards.

The county’s four board members — Paige Wood, Brenda Foster, Dwight Jordan and Kevin Lewis — were reappointed to another term earlier this month by the N.C. State Board of Elections. The board members will serve until their term expires in July 2023.

All five members of the Nash County Board of Elections were sworn in July 20 by Nash County Clerk of Court Linda Thorne.

At the July 20 meeting, Wood was elected to be the board secretary.

State statute requires the state elections board to appoint four members, two from each leading party, to the county boards of elections every two years on the last Tuesday of June, while the governor appoints a fifth member to serve as chair.

The board of elections is responsible for conducting all elections held in its jurisdiction. The board is also responsible for hiring a director — John Kearney in Nash County — to carry out its daily administrative tasks.

While each board is funded by its respective county, the county-level elections boards operate under State Board of Elections guidance.
