I'm Beth Tanner and I want your vote for District Court Judge


As a lawyer for more than a decade, I have practiced in general civil law, family law, constitutional law, and criminal law.


I have been a public servant since 2014 working on behalf of the State of North Carolina. I currently serve as the Associate Director of the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission, a state agency charged with ensuring the innocent as well as the guilty receive justice.


In my current role as Associate Director, much like a judge, I am responsible for the neutral review of claims of innocence in a fair, impartial, and efficient manner.

It is necessary for judges to be experienced in the law, dedicated to the service of their community, and fair to the people who come before them.  That is my proven record and I want your vote.

"I have known Beth Tanner for three years and I worked closely with her on a variety of healthcare policy and practice matters. She is quick as a whip when it comes to her ability to pinpoint pivotal issues underlying a given challenge or argument, but takes the time to actively listen to others before drawing firm conclusions.  I have benefitted from her wealth of knowledge, sound reasoning ability, and ready willingness to approach issues with fairness and sensitivity.  She is a natural and trustworthy leader who energizes others by her sense of humor and passion for her work, all the while maintaining focus on the “big picture.”  I am absolutely thrilled that she has entered the race for this judgeship position!  I’m also certain anyone who truly knows her shares my elation."
