RALEIGH — State legislators will hold public hearings in each of the state’s Congressional districts this month.
The N.C. House and Senate’s joint committee on redistricting finalized the schedule this week after receiving the needed county-level data from the U.S. Census Bureau in August.
Filing for 2022 primaries is set to open on Dec. 6, meaning legislators will have approximately three months to complete the redistricting process barring any changes.

Forsyth Technical Community College, 4:00 p.m.
