An election to replace Judge Martha Geer on the North Carolina Court of Appeals will be held this November, but the race will have a special filing period, according to a press release.
The State Board of Elections has announced that interested candidates may file from noon Monday, July 11, to noon Friday, July 15, at the State Board of Elections office at 441 N. Harrington St., Raleigh.
The filing fee for this office is $1,341. All candidates will appear on the ballot this November and if elected will serve for an eight-year term.
Judge Geer vacated her seat on the Court of Appeals in March, two years before the end of her second term.
