19 Hopefuls File For 1 NC Appeals Court Seat

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Nineteen people have filed to run for the open seat on the North Carolina Court of Appeals created when Judge John Martin retired last month.


A special one-week candidate filing period ended at noon Friday, with several more judicial hopefuls submitting forms and fees at the State Board of Elections in the final hours.


The candidate with the most votes on election day will win the eight-year term on the state's 15-member intermediate-level appeals court. There is no runoff.


Notable candidates include former Court of Appeals Judges John Arrowood and John Tyson, current and former trial judges and previous state elections board member Chuck Winfree. There are now three contested Court of Appeals races on the ballot this fall.


Candidates also filed through Friday for two Superior Court judgeships.
