Union County Republican Party Union County Republican Party

The 2018 Judicial elections have no Primary but the general election is partisan. Since there is no primary multiple candidates from each party may file and run for office. According to special rules governing the 2018 Judicial Election, the winner is selected by plurality not majority vote.


As a result of the special circumstances outlined above, at the 2018 NCGOP State Convention, Delegates approved a temporary change to the State Plan of Organization allowing the NCGOP State Executive Committee to Endorse in the Satewide Judicial Elections. The Statewide Judicial Candidates below are the individuals endorsed by the State Executive Committee and have our full support. When you go vote, Judicial Candidates will be at the end of the ballot.
