What to know when voting on retention in election

Maricopa County voters should expect to see 55 judges and justices on their ballot this year: those who sit on the Arizona Supreme Court, the Arizona Court of Appeals and the Maricopa County Superior Court.

In Maricopa County and any Arizona county with a population higher than 250,000, judicial retention elections decide which judges will keep their jobs. A majority of “yes” votes keeps a judge in office.

Pima and Pinal counties also have judges on the ballot. Coconino County, with a population of under 250,000, also voted to switch to the retention election process in 2018.

Judges go before the voters after their first two years in office. After that, voters reconsider them for retention every four years for trial court judges and every six years for higher court judges.
