California Supreme Court

http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/courts/supreme/
(The Chief Justice and six Associate Justices are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Commission on Judicial Appointments, consisting of the Chief Justice of California, the California AG, and a senior presiding justice of the California Courts of Appeals. The nominee takes office immediately, but must stand for retention during the next gubernatorial election, where the voters decide whether to retain the justice for the remainder of the current 12-year judicial term. Sitting justices must again undergo a statewide retention election for each subsequent full 12-year term. If the voters say 'no', the seat becomes vacant and may be filled by the Governor. Nonpartisan, 12-year terms.)




California State Courts of Appeal

http://www.courts.ca.gov/courtsofappeal.htm
(Six appellate districts, each with at least one division (19 divisions, total; only the local 1st district's divisions are shown below). Each division has one Presiding Justice and two or more Associate Justices, appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Commission on Judicial Appointments, then confirmed by the public at the next general election, and then by the public again if they run again. Nonpartisan, 12-year terms, except that, if part of the term was served before the position became vacant, the justice serves the uncompleted part, either 4 or 8 year.)

We vote only for the five divisions of District 1, which comprises all of Alameda, Contra Costa, Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano, and Sonoma counties.)
