Only judges of the Connecticut Probate Courts participate in judicial elections. Candidates for the probate courts must live in the district where they will serve. Judges are chosen in partisan elections. Judges on the court serve four-year terms and must be re-elected when their terms expire.[1]

As of January 5, 2011, probate judges elected on or after that date were required to be an attorney and a member of the state bar. However, any judge who was in office on January 4, 2011, was allowed to continue serving as a probate judge, as long as they remained in office, without interruption.[2]


Election results are posted on the Connecticut Secretary of State website.
