An appeal was filed in the recall election for the mayor of Wilson.
Mayor Joshua Thomas filed the paperwork yesterday to stop the march 27th election.

He said, he's hoping to overturn a district judge's decision to throw out the recall petition. The mayor believes many of the signatures were forged.

Court officials said it could take several days for a judge to grant the appeal.
