Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C. - Candidate filing for North Carolina's 2022 primary elections, as well as rescheduled municipal elections, will resume at 8 a.m. Thursday, February 24, and end at noon on Friday, March 4, under an order issued Tuesday by the Superior Court of Wake County.

    The order (PDF) by a three-judge panel upheld state legislative and congressional district maps being challenged in redistricting-related lawsuits.

    "State Board of Elections staff will immediately begin preparing for the continuation of the candidate filing period, including securing a location to ensure the health and safety of staff and candidates," said Karen Brinson Bell, State Board executive director. "We will provide all details to the public as soon as possible at NCSBE.gov and through an announcement distributed to the media."

    County and municipal candidate filing also will resume on February 24 and take place at the county board of elections offices. Contact the specific county office for hours of operation and COVID-19 protocols.

    Meanwhile, a separate court order (PDF) on Tuesday ordered the suspension of the consideration of any challenges to candidates for U.S. House, N.C. House, and N.C. Senate, until final resolution of the litigation in the redistricting cases, North Carolina League of Conservation Voters v. Hall. Such a challenge was filed against a congressional candidate on Monday, January 10, and the State Board was planning to appoint a panel to hear that challenge during a meeting on Wednesday, January 12, as required by state law. In accordance with the court's order, the State Board canceled its meeting, and consideration of that pending challenge is postponed until resolution of the redistricting cases.
