Question: Is it permissible to run/install Romex electrical wire through stud bore hole’s (inside the wall) located above doors and windows?
Additional Comments: So far so good.
Thanks for your electrical question Curtis.
Yes – just make sure the holes are drilled in the center of the studs and use safety plates where the wire may be vulnerable to nails or screw when applying the finished wall covering materials.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
