LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock County Republican Chairman Steve Evans released the following statement Tuesday:

With last night’s appointment of Ann-Marie Carruth to the Lubbock County Court at Law No. 3 ballot position, a vacancy has occurred in the Lubbock County Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 position.

The Lubbock County Republican Party has established the following procedures for filling the vacancy on the General election ballot for Lubbock County Justice of the Peace Precinct 4. 

Qualified applicants must submit a letter of intent, to Chairman Evans by 5:00pm August 13th. Letters of intent will be accepted by email at chairman@lubbockgop.org

All applicants will be given an opportunity to address the LCRP Precinct 4 Executive Committee* at a meeting scheduled for August 21st.

The selection vote will be held at that meeting.

*The Lubbock County Republican Party Precinct 4 Executive Committee consists of the elected Precinct Chairs of Lubbock County Precinct 4.


The Lubbock County Republican Party's executive committee has effectively appointed Ann-Marie Carruth the judge for County Court-at-law Number Three.

Judge-elect J. David Nelson's death last month vacated that seat. There's no other opponent on the ballot.

Carruth is currently the Justice of the Peace for Precinct Four.

In an address to the Republican members present, she says her experience as justice of the peace translates easily to the county court-at-law.

Since she is jumping places on the ballot, she is going to vacate the position for justice of the peace. Republican Chairman Steve Evans says the party will now have to repeat the entire process for that empty place on the ballot, with a deadline of August 27.
