Stella Anderson, David C. Black, Jeff Carmon III, Bob Cordle, and Ken Raymond were chosen.
"North Carolinians deserve fair and honest elections, and I am confident this board will work to protect our electoral process," Cooper said in a news release.
The new board could help resolve the issues with the North Carolina's disputed 9th District congressional election.
However, there is a chance the board could deadlock, refusing to certify the election or order a new election.
