The newly appointed four-member Hyde County Board of Elections took office on April 2.

The two Republican members taking the oath are Sarah Homes and Sandy Berry. The two Democrats are Alice Mackey and Lora Byrd.

The board elected Mackey as chairman, Homes as vice chairman, and Berry as secretary.

The Bipartisan State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement on March 27 appointed four members – two Democrats and two Republicans – to each of the 100 county boards of elections. The names were chosen from lists provided by the state political parties, according to Patrick Gannon, state board public information officer. These county board members will serve until at least June 25, 2019, or until their successors are sworn in.
