Process

Judges in Wisconsin participate in non-partisan elections. Wisconsin is one of four states that hold judicial elections every year, along with Louisiana, New York and Ohio.[17][18]

Primary election

A primary is held on the third Tuesday in February to nominate judicial candidates for the spring election. Candidates seeking election must file by December 1 preceding the spring general election.[17] A primary is required to be held if more than two candidates file for nomination to the supreme court, the same district of an appellate court or for the same branch of a circuit court.[17] If the number of candidates for office does not exceed twice the number to be elected to the office a primary is not held and all the candidates will appear on the ballot in the spring election.[17] The two candidates who receive the most votes in a primary race advance to the general election.[19]

General election

A spring election is held on the first Tuesday in April.[17]
