Top 3 Priorities

  • [In retention elections, justices do not run against opposing candidates.]
  • [If a justice receives more “yes” votes than "no" votes, the justice will remain in his or her position for another term.]
  • [If not, the justice will complete the current term and then a new justice will be appointed by the Governor.]
