Montana residents urged to vote in Supreme Court case

Carie Birkmeier



MISSOULA (AP) – Montana residents are being called upon to vote in the upcoming state Supreme Court race.

Lee Newspapers of Montana reports that Justice Jim Shea, who is running unopposed but will appear on the ballot for retention votes, said Monday at a Montana Supreme Court election forum in Missoula that 40,000 voters in 2014 didn’t vote in the supreme court races.

Shea and Chief Justice Mike McGrath are both on November’s ballot unopposed, but Longtime Cascade County District Judge Dirk Sandefur and former adjunct professor of law Kristen Juras are competing for an 8-year term to replace Justice Patricia Cotter.

At the election forum both Shea and McGrath called on voters to better understand what the court does and to actively help shape Montana’s judicial system.
