|| Washington's judicial elections this year were far from competitive. The few judges who ran for re-election all won new terms. Only one of them faced any competition. Three of them didn't even have to appear on the ballot. Due to the counties in which they were located, they were re-elected automatically following the election. For more information on the state's election laws, see this page: Washington judicial elections.
The race of note this year was for the Division 3, District 2 on the Court of Appeals. Recently-appointed incumbent George Fearing defeated John Gary Metro handily, with 70% of the vote.
