Court of Appeals

Division Two, District Two

(Clallam, Grays Harbor, Jefferson, Kitsap, Mason, and Thurston Counties)

District Two elects three judges; there will be no contested elections on the 2018 ballot. Rebecca Glasgow is running unopposed.


 
 

Superior Court

Superior Court judges are elected to four-year terms. Most Superior Court positions throughout Washington will be up for election in 2020.

If only one candidate runs for a Superior Court position in a county with a population of more than 100,000, that candidate receives a Certificate of Election, and the position will not appear on either the primary or the general election ballot. If there are three or more candidates for a position, the office will appear on the August 7 primary ballot. In a two candidate race, there will only be a vote on the position in November.

There no contested superior court elections in 2018.


 

District Court

District Court judges are elected to four-year terms, and all District Court positions are up for election in 2018. Noah Harrison and Mindy Walker will appear on the 2018 ballot.
