Campaign Conduct

According to Canon 5 of Wyoming's code of judicial conduct, if there is active opposition to their retention in office, judicial candidates shall not:
  • Knowingly, or with reckless disregard for the truth, make any false or misleading statement.
  • Make any statement that would reasonably be expected to affect the outcome or impair the fairness of a matter pending or impending in any court. 
  • With respect to cases, controversies, or issues that are likely to come before the court, make pledges, promises, or commitments that are inconsistent with the impartial performance of the adjudicative duties of the office.
  • Personally solicit or accept campaign funds.

Candidates may establish campaign committees to solicit and accept reasonable campaign contributions, manage the expenditure of funds for the campaign, and obtain public statements of support. Campaign committees may not solicit contributions and support earlier than one year before an election or later than 30 days after the last election in which the candidate participates.
