The Wyoming Judicial Nominating Commission is in charge of selecting justices for the Wyoming Supreme Court and judges for Wyoming's district and circuit courts.

The commission consists of seven members:

  • The Chief Justice of the Wyoming Supreme Court is automatically the chair of the nominating commission but an alternative justice can be designated to act on the commission for the chief justice.
  • Three of the seven members of the commission must come from the Wyoming State Bar. These three members are elected by the state bar. To be elected, they must be in active practice.
  • Three Wyoming electors who are not admitted to practice law in Wyoming also sit on the commission. These members are appointed to the commission by the Governor of Wyoming.

Terms of office on the commission are set and staggered in a manner prescribed by law.
