Judges in New York are chosen in partisan elections. Unlike other states, judicial elections may include candidates running for election under multiple parties. Candidates may cross-file to run for office under multiple party designations and receive endorsements from each.

Judicial elections in New York occur every year.

Closed primary elections are held to allow members of political parties select their respective candidates. The candidate who wins the Democratic primary, for example, will go on to be the Democratic nominee in the general election. Independent candidates may also run in the general election, bypassing the primary.[1] If a candidate cross-files, they could run in the general election under the Democratic party, as well as one or more other parties.
