u 2012 Washington Primary

Supreme Court Pos. 9, State of Washington

About this race

As per Washington election law, a judicial candidate who receives more than half of the votes in a primary wins the seat and does not have to run in the November general election. Therefore, if the winner of this race receives over 50% of the vote, they will win the seat and be denoted (green checkmark) as the sole winner. Otherwise, the two candidates with the most votes will advance to the November general election and both will be marked with green checkmark.
