North Carolina’s judicial primaries will be held on Tuesday, June 7th. All of New Hanover County’s 43 polling places will be open to voters from 6:30AM to 7:30PM.
Four candidates are vying for a seat on the North Carolina Supreme Court this Tuesday. Incumbent Justice Robert H. Edmunds, Jr. is running to remain in his post. Originally, Justice Edmunds would have faced only a yes-no vote, without any challengers. But New Hanover County Board of Elections Director Derek Bowens says that retention-election was overturned:
"The State Board of Elections under an order required that we hold this election due to, basically the Supreme Court having a 3-3 decision on whether a judicial retention-election is permissible under the Constitution, and essentially it was deemed that it wasn’t."
