Some Elections Delayed until 2022
Because 2021 is a year following the federal census, some municipalities must redistrict to correct population imbalances. Therefore, filing periods and election dates for district-based contests (City of Statesville, Town of Mooresville, Mooresville Graded School Board) have been delayed until 2022.
