A Raleigh Realtor has complained to the State Board of Elections.
She notes that she is required to be a member of the association to have access to the Multiple Listing Service, which lists real estate for sale.
"I do not believe that it is right that my required fees are used to support direct political action for or against ballot initiatives," she writes.
She also notes that the dues are deductible as a business expense, but the use of them for political purposes may "jeopardize" that deduction.
Harper attached an e-mail and a letter from the association about the use of dues.
Update: Elections Director Gary Bartlett said they will look into the complaint.
"We plan to do due diligence on it," he said.
