Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

The legislature submitted this proposal for a vote. It would amend the Montana Constitution to clarify procedures for election of supreme court justices and district court judges and for the filling of vacancies. Judges appointed to fill a vacancy would be confirmed by the senate and serve until the expiration of the term of the judge who position is being filled. No appointee could serve past the term of his or her predecessor with standing for election. Incumbent judges unopposed for re-election would be placed on the ballot to allow voters to approve or reject them for another term.
FISCAL NOTE: This measure will have no material fiscal impact.[2]
