RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory said he plans to appoint an entirely new state board of elections that will be responsible for running elections and monitoring campaign finance reports statewide.

The appointments take effect Wednesday. Three are Republicans and two are Democrats, a choice reflecting GOP control over state government.

The elections board’s new Republican members will be lawyers Josh Howard of Wake County and Paul Foley of Forsyth County, and Rhonda Amoroso of New Hanover County.

Democratic Party members will be Joshua Malcolm of Robeson County and Maja Kricker of Chatham County. Both chair their county elections boards.
