Vermont judicial elections

Judges in Vermont are primarily selected through the commission-selection, political appointment method. A nominating commission reviews and selects candidates and provides a list to the Governor. The Governor appoints a candidate from the list. The appointee must then be confirmed by the senate.

Judges on the probate court and assistant judges are selected in partisan elections.
