Circuit Court vacancies
The County Election Commission offices in the Fourth Judicial District have received a final interpretation from the State of Tennessee regarding elections to fill judicial vacancies in the District. According to Cocke County Administrator of Elections Josh Blanchard, the Circuit Court Judge Part II, the four-year unexpired term for the late Judge Richard ‘Dick’ Vance’s former seat, is subject to a May Republican Primary. The Qualifying Deadline for the seat will be February 15 at noon. The election commission offices in the Fourth Judicial District will issue Republican petitions for a May Republican Primary or Independent petitions for an August General Election. Persons interested in representing the Democratic party on the August General Election ballot for the seat must contact the chairperson of the Tennessee Democratic Party in order to be considered for nomination. Any caucus nominee would have to be certified to the County Election Commission offices no later than February 15 at noon. Nominating petitions for Circuit Court Judge Part I, the four-year unexpired term for Judge Ben Hooper’s former seat, are available for a Republican Primary and a Democratic Primary in May, along with Independent candidate petitions for the August General Election. The Qualifying Deadline is February 15 at noon. At this time, current interim judge Carter S. Moore of Cosby and Lu Ann (Hatcher) Ballew of Jefferson City have qualified to run in the May Republican Primary for the seat.
