Physicians have a big stake in judicial elections! Judicial decisions at this level have a great influence on medical privacy, medical malpractice liability, access to medical care, scope of practice, and an array of other medico-legal issues important to physicians. Voter participation is often very low, increasing the impact of each vote. Your vote is important.
The NCMS PAC Board of Directors considered the candidates running in statewide judicial races and endorsed candidates that, based on the available information, share the judicial philosophy of physicians on the issues most important to the profession.
