State Board sets dates for new election in 9th Congressional District

The State Board of Elections on Monday unanimously set the calendar for a new election in the 9th Congressional District as follows:

  • Candidate filing period: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 11-15
  • Primary election: May 14
  • Second primary (if necessary*): September 10
  • General election (if no second primary): September 10
  • General election (if second primary): November 5

On February 21, the State Board voted unanimously to order a new election in the 9th Congressional District after determining that irregularities occurred to such an extent that they tainted the results of the election and cast doubt on its fairness.

Also Monday, the State Board voted 3-2 to certify Vanessa Burton as the winner of District Court Judge District 16B Seat 2 in Robeson County.

Meanwhile, candidate filing began Monday for the special election in North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District. A candidate list is available here and will be updated regularly throughout the filing period.  

 

*The candidate who receives the second highest number of votes may demand a second primary if no candidate receives more than 30 percent of the votes. The top two vote-getters would be on the ballot for the second primary.
