North Carolina Court of Appeals

Judges of the Court of Appeals are elected statewide and serve eight-year terms. The Court of Appeals currently has 15 judges who sit in panels of three judges to hear appeals, so there are always five panels. Cases are randomly assigned to the panels of judges. The judges also rotate panels frequently, so each judge can serve on a panel with each of the other judges over time. The Court of Appeals reviews the case on appeal for errors of law or legal procedure; it decides only questions of law – not questions of fact. 

More information about the Court of Appeals

I am Lora C. Cubbage, and I bring Integrity, Fairness, Competence, and Respect to the bench, and your vote will ensure that those same qualities remain on the Court of Appeals. I stand on my Oath in that I will protect and defend both the NC and US Constitution. We must continue to diversify our State and work together across isles to make an NC that all of her citizens can be proud to call home. I will continue to fight for the rights of every citizen in our State and fight to continue to move NC forward. I am the right choice at the right time!

Judge Cubbage now humbly and with great pride comes before every voter of North Carolina asking you to VOTE for her for Court of Appeals.  Judge Cubbage views her judgeship as a position of trust and as an opportunity for service. She is collaborating with community, business, and justice partners to improve the courts wherever possible and is working to help ensure North Carolina courts are open, fair, and welcoming to our citizens and businesses. . Judge Cubbage respectfully and humbly ask for your help in ensuring that North Carolina continues to make forward strides by electing her, Lora C. Cubbage to the Court of Appeals on Nov. 3rd, 2020!!

A More Perfect Union—We are not going back to where we were before Donald Trump’s economy and mishandling of the pandemic—for too many Americans, that wasn’t good enough. As president, Joe Biden will lead us to a better America we know is possible. As he leads us out of Trump’s chaos and crises, he will help America build back better.

Reason 75 to Flip NC


While North Carolina has made some progress in reducing the use of solitary confinement, which induces and worsens mental health conditions and has increasingly been defined as torture, the practice is still widespread, with some prisoners housed in solitary confinement for over a decade. Democrats in the NC House have introduced legislation to sharply curtail its use.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Give Your Time at Election Time.

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions. More Information HERE
