The June Primary is very important. Republicans and Democrats will pick their candidates to be on the November ballot for the Congressional race and for the NC Supreme Court. While some Congressional districts have only one candidate for US House of Representatives, everyone will be voting for the Supreme Court seat where there are 4 candidates running. The NC Supreme Court decides important issues that impact you!

Help Us Spread the word!
Now is the time to make sure your community knows about the upcoming election! There is a new handout that features information about the special June 7th primary, with photos of the 4 candidates running for the NC Supreme Court and with descriptions of Congressional primary contests. You can help spread the word by passing out the Special Election Handout in your workplace, faith center, organizational meeting or community event. Email it to your friends and family.We can’t sit any election out! Here in NC we know that courts matter, especially when we are facing the avalanche of unconstitutional laws passed by extremists in the NC General Assembly.
We encourage you to download the handout and make copies. However, if you or your organization has the capacity to distribute 200 or more in the next few weeks, send your name, email, phone, mailing address, quantity desired, and name(s) of congregation, community center, or places where you’d distribute the handout to email@example.com and Democracy NC will send you a packet.
The District lines for who represents you in the U.S. House of Representatives recently changed because the US Supreme Court found that two of the previous districts were racially gerrymandered.
