Judge of the Circuit Court, Montgomery County

Candidates in 2018 for Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Circuit Court Judges in Maryland serve for one year, after which they must run in nonpartisan elections if they wish to continue serving. The judge may be opposed by qualified members of the bar. The successful candidates are elected to a 15 year term. At the expiration of the term, the judge may run again. The election of Circuit Court Judges is a partisan election. The office appears on the Democratic and Republican primary election ballots. However, a Democratic or Republican candidate may file and appear on both the Democratic and Republican primary ballots. The candidates who receive the majority of votes in each of the primaries will move on to the general election ballot (but their party affiliation will not be specified) and will face any petition candidates or non-principal political party candidates who have received their party’s nomination. In 2018 there are 8 candidates for 7 seats. The 7 current Judges are running on the “Elect Sitting Judges” slate. The one who is not an incumbent is challenging them.
