The Next Election is Nov. 7, 2023

This is a general election, in which candidates from different parties run against each other for each office.  Also, two current Superior Court judges are in the ninth year of their ten-year terms and therefore up for retention.  Voters get to decide whether these judges will remain on the bench.  If the majority of voters says yes, judges up for retention do not have to run against another person to remain in office for another ten-year term.  If the majority says no, the judges can remain only if they run for office the following year for another 10-year term.
