May 2022 Midterm Primary Election Results for North Carolina

This is where you'll find real-time results for North Carolina's May 2022 Primary Election. We have information for northeastern North Carolina.

Republican U.S. Senator Richard Burr chose not to run for re-election in 2022, leading to both Republican and Democratic primaries for his seat in November. On the Republican side, U.S. Rep. Ted Budd has the endorsement of former President Donald Trump, but sees a crowded primary that includes former Gov. Pat McCrory and former U.S. Rep. Mark Walker.

On the Democratic side, Cheri Beasley, the former chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court, has appeared to clear her 11-person field of significant rivals. She would be North Carolina's first Black U.S. senator if she wins in November.

In the Democratic-leaning 1st District, retiring Rep. G.K. Butterfield has endorsed State Sen. Don Davis in a four-way Democratic primary.

There are also several local primaries and a few general election races, including a general election for Elizabeth City mayor.

This primary may not be the final word for would-be nominees: first-place candidates must get more than 30% of the vote to avoid a July 26 runoff.
