Board of Elections Liaison


Melisa Taylor is a member of the NCGOP Hall of Fame. She has previously served on the MeckGOP board Voter Registration Chair and Finance Chair. She has served as the Credentials Chair for the past five years for our Precinct Meetings and Conventions and has served for several years as on the NCGOP Credentials Committee. She has served for the last four years as the Treasurer for the 12th Congressional District and served two years as the Treasurer for the 9th Congressional District. She previously served as Corresponding Secretary of the North Mecklenburg Republican Women for four years as Corresponding Secretary. 

Melisa is an inaugural member of the NCGOP's Voter Integrity Committee. In 2016, she was in charge of the Poll Observer Program for MeckGOP and volunteers as a Poll Observer At Large for every election. Working with the Board of Elections, she was the precinct Chief Judge for seven years for her precinct. She also worked for the Board of Election during early voting for four years.

Melisa’s Dad was in the Air Force so she is aware of life growing up on bases and moving away from family and friends. She proudly serves on the board of the Susan M Tillis Foundation. The foundation collects basic baby items to be given to new Moms at Fort Bragg for E-6 and below families. Many of these new Moms live far from family and friends. Each Mom receives a Baby Bundle while in the hospital which is filled with onesies, blankets, caps, socks, wipes and diapers.

Professionally, Melisa has had a long career in accounting and finance starting with Arthur Andersen. She currently works as an accountant, property manager and real estate agent. For fun, she is a day trader who loves market volatility.
