Missouri judicial elections

Judicial selection in Missouri varies between the trial and appellate courts. For the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, candidates are chosen by a nominating commission and, from those candidates, the Governor makes the final appointment.

Circuit Court judges are selected in partisan elections. All judges face retention elections at the end of their terms if they wish to retain their positions.
