Kim Westbrook Strach, executive director for the NC State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement, will discuss efforts to secure our elections through deepening partnerships with state and federal agencies, post-election audits and the modernization of the statewide elections management system, among other efforts. She will touch on the nearly $11 million the State Board is receiving to keep elections secure and will answer audience questions.

Kim Westbrook Strach has served the NC State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement for 18 years, first as an investigator (2000-01), then deputy director for campaign finance (2001–13) and executive director (2013 – present). Strach led public corruption investigations of political figures and political organizations that have led to criminal convictions on both sides of the aisle. Designated as North Carolina’s chief elections official, Strach coordinates overall compliance with state and federal election laws, issues advisory opinions interpreting campaign finance laws, implements strategic objectives set by our Board, and approves all employment decisions affecting State Board staff and county directors of elections.
