Oregon judicial elections

Judges in Oregon are elected in non-partisan elections. If more than two candidates seek a judgeship, a primary must be held. However, if one candidate receives over 50% of the votes in the primary, they are automatically elected without a general election.

Midterm vacancies are filled by gubernatorial appointment.
