By order of the North Carolina Supreme Court, filing for all offices for the 2022 primary is suspended. The order can be downloaded at the link at the bottom of this article.
The March 8, 2022 primary has been moved to May 17, 2022.
For candidates whose filing has already been accepted by the board, that candidate “will be deemed to have filed for the same office” in the May primary, subject to their ability to withdraw in the new filing period (once that period is established), and subject to any court rulings that would impact that candidate’s eligibility. See paragraph 2 of the order.
