Update: November Elections
Sep. 6 update: "North Carolina's congressional races will be held this November under the current maps, and all six proposed amendments to the state constitution will be on the ballot as well." - WRAL.com
Update: NC Constitutional Amendments
Aug. 31 update: Two of the proposed amendments to our NC Constitution have been rewritten and will be on our November ballots. A panel of Superior Court judges had blocked two of the amendments because they say they don't give voters enough information. Republicans in the legislature are likely to appeal the ruling.

Creative Loafing article (link) about the amendments: "N.C. Sen. Jeff Jackson... says the legal jargon that makes up each amendment, which voters are able to read in the voting booth, is too misleading for the casual voter to make an informed judgement. He says two amendments that allow Republicans judicial privileges while taking away rights from the governor are particularly dishonest."
