1) Election board is "singular"
2) "First of all" is parallel to "second"
3) "Failing to replace" is parallel with "failing to investigate"

IMHO E.

I think people might intuitively think "secondly" to start the subordinate phrase. Well I did. Is it really a word? It might be for non-native speakers like me

Nevertheless, the answer should be E; it maintains the parallelism.
