Bad Weather Closes North Carolina State Election Board During Filing Period for Primary Candidates

Weather in North Carolina has closed the State Board of Elections office, and some county election offices, just as candidates are supposed to be filing their declarations of candidacy for primary ballot access. See this story. Thanks to Kevin Hayes for the link.

    “The candidate filing period for this year began Monday and ends Feb. 28.” This seems like the shortest state filing period. Does this affect all parties including independents

    Independent candidates don’t need to file until they submit their petitions by the June 2014 deadline. Candidates of newly-qualifying parties don’t need to file until their party submits its petition by the May 2014 deadline.
