Meyer's professional experience includes serving as the director of student equity and volunteer services for Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
Meyer's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "The only real way to improve education in our state is to include educators in the process. Graig will be a voice not just for educators but for students and families. Recent attacks on public education can’t be defended as good for our students. As Graig has done his entire career, he will be a voice for all children and adults with a stake in our education policies."
- Excerpt: "Graig believes that the best opportunities for job creation and economic development in rural areas are through expanding markets for locally produced products."
- Excerpt: "Graig believes in expanding North Carolina’s economy by creating jobs that pay a livable wage rather than building an economy that lifts only those already at the highest income levels. Meaningful jobs are the best way to build strong families and communities, and his efforts will lay the groundwork and provide the resources so people can attain that meaningful work."
Free & Fair Elections
- Excerpt: "Graig will fight for the restoration of voting rights in North Carolina. This fight is not borne out of ambition or a legislative agenda. It is borne out of the grief and disappointment of seeing a new generation of our neighbors, friends, and families being deprived of their vote. Graig looks forward to the day when all NC citizens can be confident in their right to vote."
- Excerpt: "Because I want to live in an inclusive North Carolina, I believe LGBTQ citizens deserve equal rights under the law. These include the opportunity to marry a partner of their choosing, to exercise standard domestic and legal rights, and to be free from discrimination at home and in the workplace."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
In 2013, the North Carolina General Assembly was in session from January 9 to July 26. In 2014, the North Carolina General Assembly will be in session from May 14 through a date to be determined by the legislature.
