A North Carolina Supreme Court ruling today has halted candidate filing and pushed the primary election date from March 8 to May 17 2022.
A lower court will decide the constitutionality of map districts by January 11.
North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore said, “I am deeply disappointed in the State Supreme Court’s decision to halt and further delay our election process that is already underway.”
He continued, “To throw this process into chaos in the middle of filing leaves North Carolinians with uncertainty ahead of the election. Despite this delay, we are confident that we will prevail at trial and our maps will stand.”
