It is amazing to me how difficult it is for the public to access basic information about the upcoming elections for open seats on the Supreme Court of North Carolina and the Court of Appeals. Legal challenges find their way into the press, but the fundamentals–which seats are open, why those seats are open, who is running, why voters should care–get little coverage.
So, we have prepared a user-friendly voter-information guide to November’s appellate judicial elections. Between the FAQ and the links to the candidates’ websites, we tried to provide a consolidated location for the resources voters need. When friends and family ask you for information on these races, feel free to share a link to our guide.
Finally, if you can think of any other information we should add to the guide, drop me a line or a comment.
