Arkansas judicial elections

Judicial selection in Arkansas consists of non-partisan elections.

Judicial elections include a primary and a general election. If there are two or fewer candidates, the race is decided in the primary. If there are more than two candidates in a race, the two candidates with the most votes in the primary advance to the general election. If no candidate receives a majority of the primary vote, a runoff election is held. Vacancies on the courts are filled by gubernatorial appointment, but if a judge is appointed in this way, they may not run for the same position in the next election.
