Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for North Carolina House of Representatives District 115 — Lindsey Prather (D) and Pratik Bhakta (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
