Three candidates have submitted papers to fill the New London Municipal Judge seat that is being vacated by current Judge Dennis Resch. Resch is retiring and filed non-candidacy papers.
The three candidates who filed paperwork to be on the ballot are Bradley Graham, John Lee and Laurie Shaw.
Because there are three candidates vying for the position, a primary will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 18 to eliminate one of the candidates. The two candidates with the most votes during the primary will appear on the April 1 ballot.
