The Iowa judicial elections consist solely of retention elections for incumbent judges. In Iowa's retention elections, voters are asked to decide whether a judge should remain in office. The judge is retained for a new term if a majority of voters answers with a "yes" vote. If the majority responds with a "no" vote, the judge is removed from the bench at the end of the term.[1]

Election dates

  • July 23: Filing deadline
