In November, all 170 seats in the N.C. State Senate and N.C. House of Representatives are up for election. Not only do N.C. General Assembly members pass legislation that affects the state, but they also elect members to the UNC Board of Governors that controls the UNC System.
The Daily Tar Heel worked with six other student newsrooms across North Carolina to profile every General Assembly candidate in Orange, Mecklenburg, Wake, Guilford, Pitt, Durham and Watauga counties.
We asked every candidate five questions about issues students told us they cared about, and summarized their responses in the map below. For candidates that didn't respond, we pulled information from their websites.
