In this week’s “5 Things to Know,” Ann Webb of Common Cause NC looks at what’s happening in the world of Tar Heel politics, including:

  • one of the state’s most powerful politicians saying he won’t seek another term in his leadership post
  • a bipartisan group of county election officials raising alarms about proposed voting changes
  • the State Board of Elections approving a number of college student IDs that can be used as voter IDs
  • the end of candidate filing for this year’s local elections
  • and a kickoff for the statewide #UniteNC Town Hall Tour.
