A special election of the Tenth Judicial District Bar will be held Wednesday, September 2 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Due to concerns with COVID-19, this election will be conducted differently. We have designated three drop-off locations:

Members of the Tenth Judicial District Bar who are in good standing and live in Wake County are able to vote in this election, no matter which judicial sub-district you reside within. You are asked to print your ballot (if able) and bring it completed. We will have a limited number of ballots available at each location, but ask that you provide your own writing implement. Staff members will be at each location and will mark your name off of a Google Drive list once you have voted.

The purpose of this election is to select five nominees whose names will be forwarded to Governor Roy Cooper for consideration for the District Court Judge position in District 10A resulting from Judge Denning’s resignation. We will not be required to hold an election for the position made available with Judge Rader’s retirement for District 10C.

Each member of the Tenth Judicial District Bar who resides in Wake County is entitled to vote for up to five candidates, but may not cumulate votes for one person. As a reminder, voting shall be limited to those attorneys licensed to practice in North Carolina, who reside in Wake County and are members in good standing of the Tenth Judicial District Bar per NCGS §84-16. There is no absentee ballot available.
