All Alaskan voters have the opportunity to vote to retain Supreme Court justices.

By law, voters are allowed to decide if judges should be retained. Each judge in Alaska is subject to a retention election after a certain number of years on the bench. The number of years between retention elections depends upon the court in which the judge sits.

  • Supreme Court: 10 years
  • Court of Appeals: 8 years
  • Superior Court: 6 years
  • District Court: 4 years
Visit the Alaska Judicial Council for judicial evaluations and more information on judicial retention.
