Bar Election Results
District Court Judgeship - 26th Judicial District

The Honorable Lisa C. Bell, Chief District Court Judge, was appointed as a Special Superior Court Judge and has vacated her District Court seat. Judge Bell was reelected to the District Court bench in the November 2010 general election to serve a 4 year term. Therefore, her unexpired term will be filled through the process of an election from the members of the Mecklenburg County Bar, 26th Judicial District. Because Judge Bell was not elected as the nominee of a political party, political affiliation is not a consideration in this nomination process.

All active members of the Mecklenburg County Bar were mailed a ballot for Judge Bell's seat on Monday, May 6, 2013. This ballot must have been returned to the Bar Center at 438 Queens Road, Charlotte, North Carolina 28207 by Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 5 p.m. to be accepted for tabulation.  The Judicial Nominations Committee met at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Mecklenburg County Bar Center to tabulate the results.

The three persons receiving the highest number of votes and whose names will be submitted to Governor Pat McCrory in order of finish are:
Casey Viser
Larry D. Tucker
Sheila G. Passenant
