Wake County District Attorney May 17, 2022 Primary Election Information

April 20, 2022

The choice for Wake County District Attorney is important: District attorneys can determine whether to punish personal marijuana use, sentence children to a lifetime in prison, or seek a death sentence. We gave both candidates running in the Democratic primary, Lorrin Freeman and Damon Chetson, the opportunity to answer questions related to our criminal justice system and the office for which they are seeking election.

It’s up to you to decide.
