Legislation to dramatically reshape how judges and prosecutors are elected in North Carolina was unveiled Sunday and Monday and is the House is expected to vote on it today.

The legislation may force some incumbent judges in Cumberland County out of office over the next several years, although details were unclear on that point on Monday evening. It’s more clear that it likely would end the tenure of Hoke and Scotland County District Attorney Kristy Newton in 2020.

The bill is expected to be considered on the floor of the full house on Tuesday.
