— WRAL's @NCCapitol team provides unparalleled coverage of state government and North Carolina politics every day, as well as an array of ways for you to keep up with it all.

The @NCCapitol website includes in-depth stories on pending bills and the larger issues behind them, as well as video – both live and on demand – of legislative committee hearings, floor debates in the House and the Senate and news conferences by lawmakers and special-interest groups.

The website also includes data on state lawmakers, their voting record on key bills and a list of their major contributors; resources for voters, such as changing rules for voter ID; and special features, including the Promise Tracker to find out how well the governor does at sticking to his campaign pledges.

North Carolina political junkies can sign up for the @NCCapitol newsletter, which delivers the previous day's headlines and a look at what's coming up that day to your email inbox every weekday morning.

For those who prefer to keep up with the headlines on social media, @NCCapitol has a Facebook page where users can read many of the stories that are on the website and can also comment on them with others who share an interest in state government and politics.

And the @NCCapitol Twitter feed is a must-follow to get up-to-the-minute updates on General Assembly actions and personalities.

In TheWrap@NCCapitol, WRAL Capitol Bureau Chief Laura Leslie, Statehouse Reporter Travis Fain and an occasional guest or two provide a recap of the daily doings in the legislature and state government with a healthy dose of analysis and a pinch of snarky humor. The video is produced nightly during the legislation session and weekly when the lawmakers aren't in Raleigh and can be found on the website, on Facebook and through a Twitter link.

And for anyone who doesn't have time to sit and watch the video of TheWrap, it can be downloaded as a podcast to listen to on demand.

However you want to get your North Carolina political news, @NCCapitol has you covered.
