6 compete for 2 seats on Michigan Supreme Court

Can Democratic nominees to the Michigan Supreme Court defeat a pair of Republican incumbents?

Will Justice Beth Clement's vote to put a gerrymandering proposal on the November ballot hurt her among conservatives?

Two Michigan Supreme Court seats are at stake in the Nov. 6 election, and there are six contenders, including two incumbent justices appointed last year by Gov. Rick Snyder.

The winning candidates will serve eight-year terms.

Although justice candidates are on the nonpartisan part of the ballot, the candidates are nominated by political parties.

The incumbents are Kurtis Wilder and Elizabeth Clement, both appointed Snyder in 2017 and nominated this year by the Michigan Republican Party.

The Michigan Democratic Party nominated Megan Kathleen Cavanaugh and Samuel Bagenstos.

Wrote their names on my calendar.

2. Thanks, wrote it down

The nonpartisan part of the ballot takes some research.
