RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - It's Election Day in North Carolina. Polls across the state opened at 6:30 a.m. and will close at 7:30 p.m.

Voters will choose from a slate of primary candidates running for their party nominations for offices at all levels of government, from president to county commissioner.

Winners will move on to the November general election.

Congressional primary candidates will be chosen on June 7. This primary was delayed due to ongoing litigation over the constitutionality of the 13 congressional districts. A federal court ruled that North Carolina had to redraw districts 1 and 12, which meant other district lines were also impacted.

North Carolina is awaiting a decision from the federal court on whether those districts are now valid or must again be redrawn.
