ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Valerie Ervin’s name will not be moved up the ballot for the Maryland governor’s race after a judge ruled against a lawsuit Ervin filed.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge William Mulford made the decision Monday.

Ervin is running in place of Kevin Kamenetz after he died last month. Ervin, a democrat, was originally Kamenetz’s running mate.

Officials say Ervin wanted the ballot to reflect that she is now running for governor instead of lieutenant governor, but election officials say there is not enough time to change the ballot before the primary on June 26.

There will be notices posted on the day of the primary to alert voters of the change.
