Wisconsin was the only state to hold a Supreme Court election this year (Pennsylvania held retention elections for two of its justices, but not popular elections). The re-election of Patience Roggensack was the highlight of the state's judicial races. She defeated challenger Ed Fallone with approximately 57% of the vote and will go on to serve another ten years.

The general election in Wisconsin was largely dominated by incumbents unopposed for re-election. Out of 37 total judgeships up for election or re-election this year, only 11 of those were contested in the general election.

Ten new judges were elected this year. Lisa Stark joined the Court of Appeals, District III, after running unopposed in April. For the circuit courts, the following new judges were elected:

Additionally, Marlene Engstrom and Richard Alan Ginkowski were elected to the Kenosha County Municipal Court.
