In 1970, the Governor by executive order estab
lished statewide judicial nominating commissions
to propose nominees for appointment to the appel
late courts, and regional commissions to perform
the same function for trial court vacancies The
commissions began operation in 1971 The corn
missions were reconstituted by the Governor in
1991 (Fxecuove Order 01 01 1991 05) and in
1995 (Executive Orders 01 01 1995 06/ 07/ 10/
13) Fach judicial vacancy filled pursuant to the
Governor's appointing power must be filled from a
list of nominees submitted by one of these norm
natmg commissions
When a judicial vacancy occurs or is pending,
the Administrative Office of the Courts notifies
the appropriate nominating commission and
then solicits applications by press an
nouncements and from interested bar associa
tions Applications received are distributed to the
commission members
After the tiling deadline for a \ acancy has passed,
the nominating commission meets to consider ap
plications and relevant information, such as recom
mendations from citizens and bar associations
Each candidate is interviewed by the full commis
sion or by commission panels By secret written

ballot, the commission then prepares a list of those
candidates deemed legally and professionally most
fully qualified for judicial office No applicant may
be added to the list without the affirmative vote of
a majority of the commission members present at a
voting session The list is forwarded to the Gover
nor who must make the appointment from it
