Objections in countywide races

An objection was filed to the nominating petitions of Linda L. Mastandrea, the only person to file against Judge Cynthia Y. Cobbs in the race for the McDonald vacancy.

Five candidates filed for the Neville vacancy; only the slated candidate, William B. Raines, is not facing an objection this evening. Four separate objections, in fact, were filed to the nominating petitions of H. Yvonne Coleman in this race. Two objections were filed today to the petitions filed by Mary Alice Melchior and Patricia S. Spratt. Only one objection was filed to the petitions submitted by Carolyn Joan Gallagher in this race.

Diana Rosario, the slated candidate, and Maureen O'Donoghue Hannon do not face any objections in their bid for the Reyes vacancy, but Gregory R. LaPapa drew two separate objections. An objection was also filed to the papers submitted by Stephen J. Feldman.

Kelly Maloney Kachmarik faces an objection in her bid for the Veal vacancy. The other two candidates in that race, Judge Andrea Michele Buford and James Patrick Crawley, do not face challenges.

No other countywide judicial candidates are facing challenges.

How much evidence is needed to file an objection? Do you just file a paper, or do you need to actually list which signatures you believe are invalid when you file?
