June Primary ballot will include two races: United States Congress
and North Carolina Supreme Court. The second primary was scheduled
because of two court decisions. Federal courts ruled the current United States
congressional districts unconstitutional, and state courts ruled the elimination of competitive elections for the North
Carolina Supreme Court unconstitutional.
These decisions came too late for congressional and Supreme Court
primaries to be held during the first primary in March.
All of Steele Creek is in
the new Congressional District 12, which is entirely
within Mecklenburg County. See
