The Idaho judiciary is composed of three levels of courts--a supreme court, a court of appeals, and a district court. Judges of these courts are chosen in nonpartisan elections, in which judicial candidates may not be nominated or endorsed by a political party, appear on a party ticket, or list a party affiliation on the ballot. When a judge leaves office in the middle of his term, the governor is authorized to fill the vacancy from a list of names submitted by the Idaho Judicial Council.
