Former Prince George’s County Council Member and MACo President Ingrid Turner was elected to a Circuit Court judgeship.
According to unofficial results released by the State Board of Elections, Turner finished first among those running in Judicial Circuit 7, receiving 203,184, or 23% of the votes. Voters could vote for up to four candidates to receive judgeships.
Turner served on the Prince George’s County Council from 2006 through her term limit in 2014. She was President of the Maryland Association of Counties in 2013.
As described in our previous posts, Turner received 19.5% (79,319 votes) in the Democratic primary, placing her within the top four candidates. She did not receive enough votes to make the top four candidates in the Republican primary, however. Since the Democratic and Republican primary top four candidates differed, there was a contested judicial race in the Prince George’s County general election. Out of the five candidates to advance to the general election, Turner finished first.
