Municipal Elections Delayed Due to Census Data
North Carolina Senate Bill 722 became law without the governor’s signature on June 28.
The bill will delay certain municipal elections from 2021 to 2022 to accommodate delays in redistricting based upon 2020 Census data.
This delay will effectively extend the terms of current officeholders until the delayed elections can be held.
Winners of these delayed elections will serve their term as though they were elected in 2021 to return elections to their regular cycle.
