North Carolina Legislature Extends Session to July 2

The North Carolina ballot access bill, HB 32, still has a chance to pass the legislature. The session had been expected to end on June 19, but now the new expected date of adjournment is July 2. The bill passed the House last year, and also passed the Senate Rules Committee last year. It reduces the number of signatures needed for newly-qualifying parties and independent candidates. Currently North Carolina requires more signatures for statewide office than any other state except California.


  1. It passed rules in the senate not J1 which is where it is at now.
