Early voting concludes Saturday February 29th ahead of the March 3rd primary election in North Carolina.  In Western North Carolina, voters will begin the process of choosing a new member of Congress.  The 11th Congressional District has new boundaries this year, ensuring all of the westernmost portion of the state is in the same district.  In the Republican primary in the 11th, having no incumbent brought out one of the largest primary fields in the country.
