You may not see all of the Elect Justice candidates on your ballot depending on where you live and when each position was last up for election.
Sheriffs and district attorneys come up for election every four years. Most counties hold elections for these positions in midterm elections. That means they are up for election in the same year as the governor. If these positions are not on your ballot this year, you will likely see them on your ballot in 2022.
CA appeals court judges and Supreme Court justices are appointed by the governor and confirmed by a government commission. In the next election after the judge’s confirmation, voters decide whether to keep the judge in office. Voters then decide whether to keep CA appeals court judges and Supreme Court justices in office every 12 years.
Superior court judges come up for election every six years.
Term length for city council members and mayors depends on each city and town. Not all towns have city councils or mayors. For example, people who live in unincorporated parts of a county can vote for a county supervisor who has responsibilities similar to a city council member.
