Signing up for judgeships

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2008 at 9:50 AM

Secretary of State Charlie Daniels says 61 candidates for judgeships took advantage of the petition alternative for qualifying for the ballot. The full list is here. Judicial candidates still may pay filing fees -- more than $5,000 for some judgeships -- to file during the regular candidate filing period March 3-10 for the May 20 primary. But some contested races are already apparent. More are to come for Pulaski County seats, where petition requirements apparently are higher and all the candidates plan to pay filing fees. Typically, though not universally, judicial candidates hope for lawyers' contributions to offset such costs.
