July 16, 2012
There will be a second Republican primary for several statewide races on July 17. The second primary is needed in each race because there were more than two candidates on the ballot in the first primary, and no candidate received more than 40% of the vote in the first primary.
The candidates’ websites are linked below (candidates are listed in the order they appear on the sample ballot I downloaded from the N.C. State Board of Elections’ website). I also encourage you to Google the candidates and see what other information you can find.
Commissioner of Insurance
Secretary of State
Superintendent of Public Instruction
