Please excuse my slackness on the Beat today. Pros don’t miss deadlines, and I have demonstrated professionalism today. But if I were going to make excuses I would say that I was up until 2 a.m. last night finishing up a monster investigative project. Look for the fruits of my labor when our paper hits the streets on Wednesday.

Filing opens for High Point City Council elections today.

Tonight:

• The Forward Together Moral Movement holds a get-out-the vote rally at Corpening Plaza, located at 237 W. First St., at 5:30 p.m. The rally coincides with a federal court hearing that began today in Winston-Salem for a request by the state NAACP and other groups to try to block several provisions of a North Carolina’s restrictive new voting law. Look for our coverage of the court case in the paper on Wednesday.
