— The new congressional map voted into law by the General Assembly on Feb. 19 means thousands of voters across the state will be casting ballots in new districts this primary season – provided the map is approved by a panel of federal judges.

Although primary voting is already underway for other races through absentee ballots, the U.S. House primary will be held June 7 to give candidates time to refile in their new districts.
