Oklahoma judicial elections

Judicial selection in Oklahoma varies depending on the level of court. Candidates for the Supreme and Appellate courts are chosen by a nominating commission and, from those candidates, the Governor makes the final appointment. They must run for retention elections at the end of their terms. Midterm vacancies on all courts in Oklahoma are filled by gubernatorial appointment through a nominating commission.

District Court judges are selected in non-partisan elections. If more than two candidates seek one judgeship, a primary must be held. However, if one candidate receives a majority of the votes in the primary, they are automatically elected without a general election.
