About this office

The Supreme Court is the top court in the state with seven judges (called "justices"). It has the final decision on cases that have been appealed from the lower courts.
Judges in the higher courts get into office and stay in office in a different way than other elected officials. Judges for the Supreme Court are appointed and then confirmed. Voters are asked to vote on whether to keep the judge after confirmation, and again after every twelve years.

Candidates

You can vote yes or no on each of these 4 candidates.
