On June 7 North Carolina has a statewide nonpartisan primary for Supreme Court justice, as well as congressional primaries. Orange County is now totally in the 4th District, where David Price has no primary. Democrats and Libertarians get just the court ballot, while Republicans (plus unaffiliated who want to vote in the GOP primary) also get the Congressional. Polls on June 7 are open the usual 6:30 am to 7:30 pm
Regular voter registration is already over, but at early voting same day registration and reporting of address changes is allowed

Yes, there is a primary June 7.
Orange County has just two items on the ballot, a Supreme Court nonpartisan primary to narrow the field from 4 to 2, and a GOP primary in the 4th Congressional District. In the former all Orange County residents can vote, in the latter just Republicans and unaffiliated (unaffiliated can vote in that primary regardless of whether they voted in the Democratic or Republican primary March 15)
For Supreme Court there are 4 candidates:
Bob Edmunds, a Greensboro Republican who is the incumbent Justice. I've known Bob 45 years, and he contributed to my 1975 Chapel Hill mayoral campaign. More recently he's voted consistently in lockstep with the 4-3 GOP majority on the NC Supreme Court.
Mike Morgan, a black Democrat from Wake County. Mike has been a superior court judge the last 8 years and was a district court judge before that.
Sabra Faires, an unaffiliated voter in Wake County, the plaintiff in litigation that overturned the up or down retention election ordered by the 2015 General Assembly and forced a more normal election
Daniel Robertson, a Davie County Democrat. I know nothing about him
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Tucson's method of nominating city council members in districts and electing them citywide (similar to Orange County's method for electing commissioners) was unconstitutional.
