Justices of the Mississippi Supreme Court are elected to 8 year terms in a nonpartisan election. All judicial candidates must run in the general election. If a candidate does not receive a majority of the vote, a runoff election between the top two candidates who receive the most votes is held.[1]

If a vacancy on the court occurs, gubernatorial appointment is required.[1]

The chief justice of the court serves their duration of office and is elected by seniority.[1]

In order to join the court, an individual must meet the following qualifications:[1]

  • be a practicing attorney for at least 5 yrs;
  • be the minimum age of 30;
  • be a state citizen for at least 5 yrs.
