Kansas judicial elections

Judicial selection in Kansas varies. The Supreme and Appellate courts, as well as 17 District Courts, use the commission-selection, political appointment method. Candidates are chosen by a nominating commission and, from those candidates, the Governor makes the final appointment.

In the other 14 District Courts, judges are chosen in partisan primary and general elections. Once in office, judges of all levels must face retention elections at the end of their terms.
