After an order from the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals issued Friday (Feb. 9), candidates for N.C. Supreme Court and N.C. Court of Appeals will not file for election during the February filing period. Under the order, primaries will not be held for judicial offices in 2018.
Barring any further action by the courts, those candidates will file during a special judicial filing period June 18-29. District Court and Superior Court candidates also will file in June.
Most other candidates will file during the regular filing period, which begins at noon on Monday (Feb. 12) and runs through noon on Wednesday, Feb. 28.
