JUSTICES OF THE SUPREME COURT. The Supreme Court consists of forty-six Justices. The State is divided into eight judicial districts. The 1st district elects 7 Justices; the 2d, 5th, 7th and 8th districts each elect 6 Justices; and the 3d, 4th, and 6th districts each elect five Justices. As fast as the terms of Justices expire, elections take place for a term of 14 years. For General Term purposes, the State is divided into 5 Judicial Departments. The Governor designates the Justices to hold the General Terms. In each department there is a Presiding Justice, who holds office during the term for which he was elected to the bench, and two Associates, who hold office for 5 years, unless the terms for which they were elected sooner expire.
