The North Carolina District Attorney is a agency that is responsible for handling the enforcement and discipline of North Carolina's campaign finance laws.


There is one District Attorney that is elected in all of the 43 counties in North Carolina. Each District Attorney's office has assistant prosecutors and related staff[1].

Campaign finance discipline

The respective district attorneys investigate complaints on referrals from the North Carolina State Board of Elections. If someone feels a person or committee violated North Carolina campaign finance law, the first step is to file a complaint with the State Board of Elections. It is up to the Board to investigate all complaints and to determine any probable cause[2]. If probable cause is found, the complaint is referred to the respective district attorney in the county where the alleged offense happened[3].
