Need help with Democratic nominees on ballot

Does anyone have a link to nominees who are endorsed or supported by the NC Democratic party? I always have a hard time finding information on the judges, clerks of courts, etc., that have no party affiliation listed on the ballot.

The removal of party affiliation of judges on the ballots is basically a stealth attack to sneak in conservative judges and I try to make sure I have a list of the more liberal judges before filling out my ballot.

Thanks.

3. Do you not get the voter guide in the mail?

We have already gotten ours. It comes from the state BOL. They don't list party affiliations, but if you read the bios its pretty easy to spot the cons, they usually have a good bit of ' code talking'. You can probably get one at your local library.
