General Assembly Votes for Second Delay of Primary Elections
The North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 605, delaying the 2022 primary elections to June 7.
The primary elections were already delayed by the state Supreme Court due to ongoing litigation over redistricting from March 8 to May 17.
The Republican-supported bill now faces a potential veto by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.
Although Cooper has not said whether he would veto the bill, a spokesman for him has said the bill undermines the voting process.
