Altering Selection Methods

Selection methods and term lengths for judges of the supreme court, court of appeals, and circuit court are prescribed in Indiana's constitution, except that circuit court elections may be made nonpartisan by statute. Constitutional amendments may be proposed in either house of the legislature and must be approved by a majority of the members of each house in two consecutive legislative sessions. Proposed amendments must then be ratified by a majority of voters.
