Aug. 8, 2013. Watauga County Board of Elections Director Jane Ann Hodges confirmed that Luke Eggers of Boone was appointed to the third seat on the Watauga County Board of Elections. Eggers is the younger brother of Four Eggers, who previously served on the Watauga County Board of Elections.
This comes a few weeks after Jim Hastings declined to accept the post. The other two members of the Watauga County Board of Elections – Kathleen Campbell, a Democrat, and Bill Aceto, a Republican – were sworn in mid-July by Judge Ted McEntire.
Hodges added that the first meeting date with all three members of the board is yet to be determined.
