There is a judicial performance commission in each of the 22 judicial districts and state judicial performance commission. Each commission consists of 10 members, four of whom are attorneys, six of whom are non-attorneys. The Governor and the chief justice of the Supreme Court each appoint one attorney and two non-attorneys. The remaining members are appointed by the president of the Senate and the speaker of the House.
The Colorado General Assembly created the judicial performance commissions to provide voters with fair, responsible, and constructive evaluations of trial and appellate judges and justices seeking retention in general elections.
