A compilation of threats sent to Judge Mary Brown, who is presiding over a custody case involving a trans child. If you’ve already early-voted, you noticed a write-in-only option for the 301st State District Court.
Judge Mary Brown currently sits on that bench. Brown submitted her re-election forms and would probably have been easily re-elected, but another Democrat challenged the signatures on her application and her name was not placed on the ballot.
No Republicans filed for the seat, so whoever receives the most write-in votes will become the judge for the 301st. To be clear, Brown is running and you can write in her name.
But a Republican — Earl Jackson — has also thrown his hat into the ring, and you may choose to write in his name. Tabulating the vote will take weeks, since it’ll be done by manually and a lot of people have written in their own or a friend’s name.
