The Montana Supreme Court seal
State of Montana Supreme Court / State of Montana Supreme Court


Three candidates are vying to fill one of the seven seats on Montana’s Supreme Court. The candidates are pointing to their legal experience ahead into the June 2 primary.

The race is non-partisan and the primary will result in the two candidates with the most votes moving onto the general election in November.

There’s a three-way race underway for a seat on the Montana Supreme Court. Each of the candidates are relying on self funding to get their 2020 campaigns off the ground.

Justice Laurie McKinnon, who lives in Helena, is running for reelection after announcing last year she would not seek a second eight-year term on the state high court.
