Election rules

Primary election

In the primary, most candidates for the trial courts compete in partisan elections.

Exceptions are:

  • Circuit court candidates in Vanderburgh County run in nonpartisan elections.
  • Superior court candidates in Allen and Vanderburgh counties compete in nonpartisan elections.
  • Judges in Lake and St. Joseph counties are appointed by the Governor and stand for retention two years into service and at the end of subsequent terms.[6]
  • When a superior court vacancy occurs in Marion County, candidates are reviewed by a member judicial selection committee, which sends the names of three nominees to the governor. The governor must appoint one of the nominees as judge within 60 days. At the end of a judge's term on the court, the question of the judge's retention may be placed on the general election ballot. Before a judge can stand for retention, the judge must appear before the committee to allow the committee to issue a recommendation to voters regarding the judge's suitability to continue to hold office.[7]

General election

Superior court judges in Lake and St. Joseph Counties stand for retention. All other trial court judges compete in contested races.[6][8]

If a vacancy occurs mid-term on the Indiana Supreme Court or Indiana Court of Appeals, the governor makes an appointment from names supplied by the judicial nominating commission. Vacancies on the circuit and superior courts are filled by direct governor appointment. Appointed judges must then run in the next general election, or the next general election after two years in office for supreme and appellate appointees.[8]

Unopposed candidates

If there is no contest for a judicial seat in either the primary or general election, the candidates for that seat are not placed on the primary ballot. Candidates who are unopposed in the primary, however, must still appear on the primary ballot if there is any opposition for the seat by any other party.[9]

Marion County Superior Court party affiliation

Judges are elected to the Marion County Superior Court under a unique state law enacted in with the goal of reducing the influence of political parties in the judicial selection process.[10] Under this system, judicial candidates seeking party nomination pay a fee to their party to cover campaign costs. Each party then nominates candidates for half of the open judicial seats in the primary. This judicial selection law ensures that Democrats and Republicans never run against each other in the general election and are represented equally on the bench.[11]

Election rules

Primary election

The general primary occurs on the third Tuesday in March.[2] Unlike many states with contested judicial elections, races in Illinois are regularly contested, often with several candidates running for a seat. The Illinois primary is closed, meaning that voters must declare which major political party's ballot they wish to vote on.[3]

The candidate that wins the most votes in the primary advances to the general election to compete against the candidate from the other party.[2] If only one party has candidates in a primary race, that winner will continue on to run unopposed in the general election.[4] Uncontested primary candidates are not included on the primary ballot but instead automatically advance to the general election.[2][5]

General election

The general election is held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November.[2]

Retention election

At the expiration of their term, judges may run for retention. Judges seeking retention are required to file a declaration of candidacy to succeed themselves with the secretary of state at least six months prior to the general election. The names of judges seeking retention are then given to voters on a special judicial ballot—without party designation and without an opposing candidate—featuring the sole question of whether he or she should be retained for another term in office.[6] Retention elections are held along with the general elections in the specific district or circuit where the judge is seeking retention. To be retained, judges must receive three-fifths of the vote.[7]

Daria: I slept so sweetly on the night from Friday to Saturday, as they say, without hind legs. And I woke up already at 11 o'clock.
