Some of the judges in USA are elected positions.
In those cases, there are 4 options:
- Position is elected for life
- Position is elected for a term and the person can't run again
- Position is elected for a term, and at the end of the term the judge has to be "re-approved" by voters without having to stand for a competitive election.
- At the end of the term, the judge has to stand in a competitive election, the way most legislators do.
Are there any localities and judicial positions in USA which are elected and are of the model #4 (e.g. the judge has to stand for regular competitive election at the end of the term)?
