IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE PENDER COUNTY BOARD of ELECTIONS
Hampstead Annex Location will be by appointment only until February 1, 2022. For information call 910- 259-1220.
CANDIDATE FILING IS SUSPENDED
By order of the North Carolina Supreme Court, filing for all offices for the 2022 primary is suspended. This includes the rescheduled municipal contests, and any separate filing period for those municipal contests in January.
The March 8, 2022 primary has been moved to May 17, 2022.
For candidates whose filing has already been accepted by the board, that candidate “will be deemed to have filed for the same office” in the May primary, subject to their ability to withdraw in the new filing period (once that period is established), and subject to any court rulings that would impact that candidate’s eligibility.
We will inform you of any further developments.
