New election for Seventh Court of Appeals set for July 14webmaster May 13, 2020 0 COMMENTS
A new election in the Republican primary for Justice for the Seventh Court of Appeals is scheduled to be held on July 14.
The new election was called for after the March 3 election when it was discovered that more than 1,200 citizens in two counties did not have the Seventh Court of Appeals election on their ballots. The appellate court voted 3-0 to allow the new election to move forward.
The decision was announced by Seventh Court of Appeals Justice Larry Doss that upholds the findings of a district judge to order the new elections. The Seventh Court of Appeals hears cases for the Panhandle and South Plains of Texas, which covers 46 counties.
The new election will be held in 45 counties including Bailey County.
