Granville County will hold a public hearing to obtain a Closeout Report on the County’s 2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for Economic Development for Strong Arm Baking. The County received a $300,000 CDBG grant to assist in the renovations of a 9,000 square foot building located at 117 Main Street in downtown Oxford.

Primary Election Candidate Filing to Resume on February 24

Posted February 8, 2022

 

Candidate filing for the 2022 statewide primary and rescheduled municipal elections will resume at 8 a.m. February 24 and end at noon March 4.

 

On December 8, the N.C. Supreme Court suspended the filing period, which had begun December 6, and moved the date of the statewide primary and rescheduled municipal elections to Tuesday, May 17. The general election is November 8.

 

Candidates who filed before the suspension of the filing period do not need to re-file if they still wish to run for the same office. However, those candidates may withdraw their candidacy during the new filing period and instead file for any other office for which they are eligible. The deadline to withdraw is the close of business on March 1.

 

“Choosing to run for an elected office is a major decision,” said Karen Brinson Bell, executive director of the State Board of Elections. “We want filing to be a smooth and customer-friendly process for all candidates, and we have strived to create an efficient and safe environment for everyone.”

 

Depending on the office sought, candidates will file their Notices of Candidacy with either their county board of elections or the State Board of Elections.

 

Candidates for the following offices will file with the State Board:

 

  • U.S. Senate 
  • U.S. House of Representatives 
  • N.C. Supreme Court Justice 
  • Judge of the N.C. Court of Appeals 
  • Superior Court judge 
  • District Court judge 
  • District attorney

 

Candidates for the following offices file with their county board of elections: 

 

  • N.C. Senate 
  • N.C. House of Representatives 
  • All county and municipal offices

 

Important: Candidates filing with the State Board will file at the Governor James G. Martin Building, 4381 Trinity Road, Raleigh, located on the N.C. State Fairgrounds. (Note: This is a change in location, as candidate filing in December was held in the Exposition Center, also on the Fairgrounds.)

Candidates, guests, and members of the media should enter the Fairgrounds through Gate 9 on Trinity Road. (See Fairgrounds map.)
