The date of the NC-03 primary election is on Tuesday, April 30.
If, in either the Democratic or Republican primaries, no candidate reaches 30% of the vote in the first primary, a second primary election will be held between the top two vote-getters in that primary on July 9, and the general election will be held on September 10. Otherwise, July 9 will be the date of the general election and there will be no election on September 10.
