State Supreme Court
There are 5 judges, appointed by the governor with the assistance of a commission responsible for providing the names of three nominees to the governor, who must then select a justice from that list. The commission is made up of six voting members from the three geographic districts covered by the Indiana Court of Appeals. Members include three attorneys, elected by attorneys in their respective geographic districts and three non-attorneys, appointed by the governor. Judges serve at least 2 years following their initial appointment. They must stand for retention at the first statewide general election in order to remain in office. If retained, justices serve a 10-year term and must stand for retention every ten years after that point in order to remain in office. All 5 judges were appointed by Republican governors. Vacancies are filled as the seat normally would be at the end of a term.
US Representatives & Senators
Senate seats (R) are up in 2022 and 2024. House seats (7R, 2D) are up in even years.
Congressional and state legislative district lines are drawn by the state legislature. The legislature must approve a redistricting plan by the close of the first legislative session occurring after completion of the United States Census. The governor may veto. In the event that both chambers of the state legislature do not approve a congressional redistricting plan, a backup commission must draw the lines. There are currently 9 congressional districts, 50 state senate and 100 state house districts. The Indiana General Assembly approved new congressional and state district maps on 10/1/21 and the governor signed them into law on 10/4/21.
