Washington Supreme Court

Supreme Court justices are elected to six-year terms by voters throughout the entire state. There are nine Supreme Court justices, and Washington residents vote for three in 2012.

Supreme Court candidates appeared on the primary election ballot on August 7, 2012. Candidates who received more than 50% of the votes cast in the primary will appear on the general election ballot without opposition. If no candidate received more than 50% in the primary, the top two candidates appear on the general election ballot on November 6, 2012.


Position 2: Susan Owens is the incumbent. Because she received over 50% of the votes in the primary, she will appear on the general election ballot unopposed.
