Judicial Campaigns and Elections: Washington
A 2006 law applied the same contribution limits to supreme court and court of appeals candidates as for statewide candidates for other offices, and it set the same limits for superior court candidates as exist for state legislative candidates. Contributions to appellate court candidates are capped at $1600 per donor for the primary and $1600 for the general election, and contributions to trial court candidates are capped at $800 per election. Prior to this legislation, there were no limits on contributions to judicial candidates, except during the three-week period before the general election.
See below for National Institute on Money in State Politics data on contributions to state high court candidates.
