The selection of Ohio state court judges takes place in partisan primaries, nonpartisan general election for the Ohio Supreme Court, Ohio District Courts of Appeals, and through partisan primaries, nonpartisan general and municipal elections for trial courts, county courts and municipal courts. The Michigan method was used to select state supreme and intermediate appellate court judges.

The Northern District of Ohio is the federal district court in Ohio, while the Southern District of Ohio is the federal district court.

The Ohio Supreme Court was established in 1802 and currently has seven judgeships. Maureen O'Connor is the current chief judge of the court. The court decided 2,188 cases in 2018. In September 2021, seven nonpartisan general election judges were elected. Three of them came from Democratic primaries, while four others were advancing from Republican primaries.

The intermediate appellate courts in Ohio are the District Courts of Appeal. These courts are established under Article IV, Section 1, of the Ohio Constitution. Their jurisdiction is described in Article IV. Section 3.

The District Courts of Appeal are made up of twelve districts. Each district is assigned a number of counties. Each district is home to between four and twelve judges.

The Ohio County Courts are competent to hear criminal cases involving misdemeanors, felonies preliminary hearings, and most violations in township resolutions. Civil claims less than $15,000. are also under the jurisdiction of the County Courts.

About Ohio

Ohio was nicknamed the "fuel cell corridor" because it served as a major anchor for the region, now known as the "Green Belt," which refers to the rapidly growing renewable energy sector. Despite suffering from heavy manufacturing losses and the Great Recession at the end of the 20th Century, Ohio was able to rebound by the second decade and is now the 6th fastest-growing economy in the country through the first half of 2010.

The Third Frontier program, which was spearheaded by Governor Bob Taft at the beginning of the century, marked Ohio's transition to the 21st Century. The program supported the development of advanced technology industries and built on the industrial and agricultural pillars of Ohio's economy. This initiative was widely successful in attracting 637 high-tech companies to the state, creating 55,000 jobs and an average salary of $65,000. It also had a $6.6 million economic impact, with an investment return ratio of 9:1. The state was awarded the Excellence in Economic Development Award by the International Economic Development Council in 2010. This award is regarded as a national example of success.
