North Carolina judicial election, 2006
Justices of the North Carolina Supreme Court and judges of the North Carolina Court of Appeals are elected to eight-year terms in statewide judicial elections. In 2006, all
these races were non-partisan. The 2006 congressional
elections and the 2006 North Carolina
legislative elections were held on the same day, November 7, 2006.
The result was that all incumbents except Linda Stephens were elected (if they had been appointed) or re-elected. All the candidates supported by FairJudges.net, the first independent group to get involved in North Carolina's non-partisan judicial elections, won.
