For those who may need a quick refresher, Vermont’s Supreme Court Justices, Superior judges, magistrates, and the chair and members of the Public Utility Commission are appointed by the Governor from a list of candidates provided to him by the Judicial Nominating Board. Vermont attorneys are given three seats at the JNB table – one at-large position, one for the northern counties, and one for the southern counties. The attorney members of the JNB are elected by Vermont licensed attorneys who are also resident in the state.
The Court Administrator’s Office sent an email memo on December 12, 2022 advising that voting for the those candidates has opened. The memo provides a link to the statements of interest of the candidates, compiled by the VBA, and an electronic ballot with instructions.
