Missouri Nonpartisan Court Demographics for Court Vacancies

 

Under the nonpartisan plan, as vacancies arise, the appropriate Judicial Selection Commission interviews applicants and recommends a panel of three to the governor. The governor must interview and appoint one of the three within 60 days.

Pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 10.28(d), the Nonpartisan Court Commission releases information relating to applicants for the judicial vacancy. Demographic data is released at www.courts.mo.gov
