N.C. primary election results

RALEIGH – With Tuesday’s primary election barely in the rear view mirror, the filing period began today at noon for candidates seeking nomination to the U.S. House of Representatives under new district lines. The lines are still under review by a federal court in Winston-Salem. Filing also opens for the state’s Supreme Court. Filing will close at noon on March 25. The North Carolina Board of Elections will periodically post an updated list of candidates filing for those races at ncsbe.gov.
In Tuesday’s primary election, slightly more than 35 percent of North Carolina voters turned out with results below for the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations and nominations for North Carolina’s Council of State races.
