Cooper Veto On Judicial Elections Overridden

North Carolina Superior and District court judge elections are to be partisan once again. The state Senate voted mostly along party lines Thursday to override Governor Roy Cooper's veto of House Bill 100. Identifying the political affiliation of judges on the ballot was ended by the Democratic-controlled General Assembly of 2002. The bill requires any unaffiliated candidate to collect the signatures of more than 95,000 of North Carolina's registered voters on a petition, to be listen on the ballot. The override succeeded 32-15.
