YOUR VOICE YOUR VOTE: 2014 candidate filing period begins today

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Some campaigns began months ago, but the start of the candidate filing season means the election season officially opens in North Carolina.

The State Board of Elections and county elections offices begin accepting candidate forms at noon today. The filing deadline is Feb. 28.

Voters this year will decide whether to re-elect US Sen. Kay Hagan or one of her rivals. They'll choose members of the US House delegation, all 170 members of the General Assembly and dozens of judgeships. There will also be scores of county commissioner and school board elections.

The primary is May 6, with runoffs July 15 if needed. The general election is Nov. 4.
