 SSRN-Judicial Campaign Codes After Republican Party of Minnesota v. White by Richard Briffault   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
In nineteen states, most judges are initially appointed but must later go before the voters in a so-called retention election - in which there is no competing candidate but voters are asked simply whether they approve of the incumbent - in order to keep their positions.

White, a closely divided Supreme Court invalidated the provision of the Minnesota Code of Judicial Conduct that precluded ju-dicial candidates from "announcing" their views concerning disputed legal and political questions.
