Judge Carroll will be unopposed

You might have been too busy hanging (or emptying) your Christmas stocking to notice, but the special judicial filing period closed on December 23 with no one filing to oppose Judge Thomas J. Carroll, the "pre-slated" candidate whose campaign was ignited when Judge Michele F. Lowrance left the Cook County bench.

No candidate filed to oppose Judge Carroll in the Democratic Primary; no Republican candidate filed for this vacancy either.

Five countywide Circuit Court candidates are now in uncontested election races. In addition to Judge Carroll, Judges Daniel J. Kubasiak (Egan vacancy) and Caroline Kate Moreland (Howse vacancy) are unopposed, as are Maritza Martinez (Burke vacancy), Patricia O'Brien Sheahan (Felton vacancy).

David Ellis is also unopposed in his bid for the Murphy vacancy on the Illinois Appellate Court.
