Welcome to this week’s pop quiz where we ask elected officials or candidates three questions. This week’s questions were addressed candidates for NC State House and were asked on Monday. The rules are simple: No research, no callbacks.
1. How early do polls open on Election Day? 2. Can ex-felons vote in North Carolina? 3. Who do you expect to win the governor’s race?
