NCDP Statement on North Carolina Supreme Court Decision

Today, North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Bobbie Richardson released this statement following the North Carolina Supreme Court’s decision to halt candidate filing and delay the primary election until May 17, 2022:

“I am grateful that the North Carolina Supreme Court is taking action to address this important issue, which will determine the makeup of our state’s electorate for the next 10 years. Halting candidate filing and delaying the primary election are important steps towards ensuring North Carolina voters have the freedom to elect their representatives. Voters don’t need help from legislators to decide who represents them.”
