The Pro-Choice North Carolina Political Action Committee (PAC) is excited to endorse the following candidates for North Carolina races, and there are many great candidates and pro-choice champions running for office in North Carolina this year. Pro-Choice North Carolina PAC does not have the capacity to endorse in all races, but we are happy to share these endorsements with you. Please check back for endorsement and election updates!
Some criteria the Pro-Choice North Carolina PAC considered that contribute to our endorsement list include: Strategic districts and races where a pro-choice champion can make a difference; diversity of the candidates; and, for incumbents, votes taken on issues that will advance reproductive freedom for all North Carolinians.
The Pro-Choice North Carolina PAC is a nonpartisan committee.
Websites for all of the candidates are provided so voters can learn more about each endorsed candidate. An "*" indicates an incumbent who currently serves in that district and "**" indicates an incumbent who is running in a newly redrawn district or for a new office.

All elections are important! And some years, like this year, your ballot may be long, and include local, state, and federal offices. It is critical that you make your voting plan NOW, whether that is one-stop early voting in-person, voting by mail, or voting in-person on Election Day. Voting experts recommend that whether in-person or by mail, voting early allows you the most flexibility.
