Each of Colorado’s 22 judicial districts has a nominating commission comprised of seven members, no more than four of which may be from the same political party and no more than three of which may be admitted to practice law in Colorado. Each judicial district nominating commission also has a non-voting Colorado Supreme Court justice as its chair. Judicial nominating commissions review applicants for vacancies on the county and district court benches in their judicial districts and submit nominees for appointment to the governor.
