Idaho judges are primarily chosen in non-partisan primary and general elections. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the primary, the top two candidates advance to a runoff election in the general election. Magistrates judges, however, are first chosen by a commission and then stand for retention at the end of their terms.
