Judicial Retention

There are sixteen Alaska judges that will face a retention vote on November 5th. Unlike many other states which hold partisan elections for judicial candidates, the Alaska system has remained relatively free from the perception of bias and partiality. Also missing in Alaska are the expensive campaigns and the flood of campaign commercials over the airwaves just before an election. The reason is because of Alaska’s unique selection process for judges.Related Link: Alaska Judicial Council
