Governor to appoint replacement

A 2010 Constitutional Amendment requiring the Jackson County Commission to call for a special election for any vacancy in a county office when 12 months of an unexpired term remains will have no bearing on the vacancy of the Jackson County District Judge’s office.
The amendment approved by 79 percent of Jackson County voters in the 2010 General Election applies only to county offices. The district judge office is a state office. According to the Secretary of State’s office, Governor Robert Bentley will appoint a judge to fill the unexpired term of Judge Ralph Grider who announced his retirement last month after serving 25 years on the bench.
