There were three posi­tions on the Ohio Supreme Court that were up for elec­tion in 2012, two full-term seats and one partial-term seat that expires on Decem­ber 31, 2014. The first seat, with a term commen­cing on Janu­ary 1, 2012, had two candid­ates—in­cum­bent Justice Terrence O’Don­nell (R) and Michael Skindell (D). Incum­bent Justice Robert Cupp (R) and William O’Neill (D) were compet­ing for the second seat, which had a term commen­cing on Janu­ary 2, 2012. The partial-term seat had two candid­ates as well—in­cum­bent Yvette McGee Brown (D), who was appoin­ted to the seat on an interim basis, and Sharon Kennedy (R). While Ohio does not have partisan judi­cial elec­tions, candid­ates are allowed to disclose their party affil­i­ations.

The general elec­tion was held on Novem­ber 6. Terrence O’Don­nell was elec­ted to the term start­ing Jan. 1 2013, William O’Neill was elec­ted to the term commen­cing Jan. 2, 2012, and Sharon Kennedy was elec­ted to the interim term expir­ing Dec. 31, 2014. For the seats without a partial term, justices serve for six years.
