RALEIGH, N.C. — A veteran FBI agent will join the State Board of Elections next month to assist in voter fraud and campaign finance investigations, officials said Tuesday.

Chuck Stuber has worked for the FBI for 28 years, serving in Washington, D.C., Denver and Raleigh. He was involved in investigations of former Gov. Mike Easley and former House Speaker Jim Black, both of which ended in convictions.

The elections board said last month that it would investigate cases of possible voter fraud identified by an interstate cross-check comparing election records from 28 states.

“I am honored to join the State Board of Elections during this important time,” Stuber said in a statement. “I have deep respect for those within the agency and look forward to working with them to enforce our state’s election laws.”

The Raleigh native is both a lawyer and a certified public accountant, with degrees from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina School of Law.
