Candidates listed below have filed with North Carolina to run for office.

The filing period ended Feb. 28. The primaries will be held May 8.

All 13 U.S. representatives from the state have filed for re-election, and all of them have at least one opponent. Neither of the state’s two U.S. senators are up for re-election in 2018.

State legislative races are unusually competitive. Democrats filed to run in all 170 state House and state Senate districts. Republicans filed in all but one of those districts, and said a GOP-supported candidate would run there.
