Judicial selection

The method of judicial selection for the California superior courts is officially by non-partisan election of judges, though many judges join the court by gubernatorial appointment to fill vacancies on the court. Appointed judges may serve on the court until the term they are appointed to expires. They must then run in the next general election to continue serving on the court.

If an incumbent superior court judge files for re-election and draws no opponent, the race does not appear on the ballot. If the race is contested, the candidate who wins more than 50% of the vote is elected. If no candidate receives more than 50%, the top two compete in a runoff in the general election in November.[3]
