Primary ELECTION June 7th


Two races on this ballot: NC Supreme Court and US House

One Supreme Court Justice seat is on everyone’s ballot. There are THREE Democrats  and ONE Republican listed. Since it’s a non-partisan race, their party affiliations are not marked on the ballot, making it hard for everyone to have the most basic knowledge – R or D.  If the voters know, the voters can make their decision.

Justice Robert Edmunds (R) is currently on the Supreme Court. He is a conservative.

This is very important, as the balance of decision making could shift to the Dem’s if the Republican doesn’t win. Right now the NC Supreme Court is 4 Repub and 3 Dem.

The only other race on our ballots is the Congressional races, and they are under heated litigation. Some districts have been re-drawn. The Democrats are challenging the District Boundaries and this June 7th election may not stand. It hasn’t been authorized yet. That’s the short story.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R), NC-11, has no opponent in his Republican Primary, but he will not be on the June 7th ballot. However, there are two Democrats (Tom Hill and Rick Bryson) running for this seat. One Dem will make it to the ballot in November with Rep. Meadows in November.

11th District – Burke County BoE link. Henderson County BoE link. Catawba County BoE link.  Caldwell County Board of Elections has no information about this election, not even the date, on their website, so unfortunately I can’t share Caldwell specific links with you. But maybe they will put that info up tomorrow. Here’s the link for Caldwell. (There are more districts. Google: “____ County NC Board of Elections” to find yours.)

Rep. Virginia Foxx and Pattie Curan are running for the Republican seat on the 5th District ballot. Pattie Curran (pattiecurran.com) is a true conservative, an Officer in the Army Nation Guard, wife, homeschool mom, and much more.  Foxx is running for her 7th term.
