New Hampshire


Justices and judges in New Hampshire do not participate in judicial elections. Instead, they are recommended by a selection commission, chosen via gubernatorial appointment and confirmed by the executive council. Judges are not subject to terms, but instead serve until the age of 70.

Similar systems, with some variations, are utilized in Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
