RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Another primary election cycle is starting up in North Carolina just hours after Tuesday’s primary polls closed.
The filing period for North Carolina’s 13 congressional seats begins at midday Wednesday and continues until noon March 25.
Voters were supposed to make congressional primary choices Tuesday. But court rulings last month about the state’s congressional district lines forced the General Assembly to redraw the boundaries and delay those elections until June 7.
Wednesday also begins the filing period for a seat on the North Carolina Supreme Court up for election in November. That’s because state judges struck down a law that had allowed Justice Bob Edmunds to run in an up-or-down retention election. A July primary will be needed for this race if at least three candidates file before the 25th.
