The two candidates are seeking the Libertarian Party nomination in the April 30 primary election. If no party’s primary ends in a runoff, the special general election will take place July 9. The special election will fill the seat vacated when U.S. Representative Walter Jones died in February.

In another special election, Jeff Scott is unopposed as the Libertarian nominee for the U.S. Congress in North Carolina’s 9th District. Scott was a candidate in the 2018 general election for that seat, which was invalidated following revelations of election fraud, and he remains the nominee for the special general election scheduled for September 10. Information about Scott’s campaign is available at

The LPNC is giving North Carolina voters a choice in federal, state, and local election campaigns. To learn more, visit For more information on this announcement, to contact the LPNC for comment, or for help in contacting a specific candidate, please email [email protected].
