Article 5, Section 4 (c) – (e) of the Wyoming Constitution establishes a Judicial Nominating Commission tasked with nominating three qualified applicants for each Supreme Court justice, district judge, or circuit judge vacancy. Three members of the Commission are selected by the Governor, and three attorneys engaged in the practice of law are elected by the Wyoming State Bar. The Chief Justice serves as chairman of the Commission, but is authorized to vote only in the event of a tie. Those interested in a judicial position must submit an extensive Expression of Interest and a writing sample, and must submit three names of judges and three of attorneys who will provide a candid appraisal of their potential as jurists, as well as two personal references. The Commission reviews all of those materials and interviews suitable candidates. The Commission views its task as providing the Governor with a difficult decision by nominating the three best persons expressing interest in each position. The Governor must select the judicial officer from the list of three certified by the Commission.
