April 7th is the General Spring Election in which a justice to the State Supreme Court will be elected and an amendment to the constitution will be up for consideration. The candidates are incumbent Justice Ann Walsh Bradley, a progressive, and James Daley, a conservative. The constitutional amendment changes the method of selecting the Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court and is a move widely seen as an attempt to remove Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, a progressive, from that position.
