2014 New York State Elections

Total candidates: 154 Primary candidates: 68 General election candidates: 136 Incumbency Incumbents: 34 Incumbent success rate: 76% Competition - general election Percent of candidates in contested races: 77% Percent uncontested: 23%

New York judicial elections are held every year. A total of 154 individuals lined up for a chance at a judgeship in 2014, 34 of whom were incumbents. A lucky 31 were able to run to victory unopposed in the general election. Another 105, however, faced competition in November.

Most races were for several open seats, and an abundance of individuals were not shy about tossing their hats in the ring. For example, one district court race for four open seats featured ten candidates, with no incumbents.

The candidates for the state's supreme courts (the primary trial courts) were selected through a unique system of party conventions rather than primaries. Citizens voted for convention delegates in September and the delegates then chose the candidates to fill November's general election ballot. Voters made the final decision between the candidates selected for the general election.

See for an overview of the state's election results.
