Overview of the Guide

This Voter Guide is intended to give you vital information about voting in North Carolina and about candidate seeking election to the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and the offices of Auditor, Commissioner of insurance, and Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Who pays for this guide?

The cost of this guide is paid for by the Public Campaign Fund; it receives money from a voluntary $3 check off designation on the state tax form and from a $50 surcharge on the annual dues attorneys pay to the State Bar.
