Under existing law, a judge, except a judge of probate, appointed to fill a vacancy, except as otherwise provided in a local constitutional amendment, serves an initial term until the next term begins following the general election after the judge has completed one year in office
This bill would propose an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that a judge appointed to fill a vacancy would serve an initial term until the first Monday after the second Tuesday in January following the general election after the judge has completed two years in office or the remainder of the original term of the judge elected to office, whichever is longer
To propose an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to amend Section 6.14 of Amendment 328 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, now appearing as Section 153 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, to further provide for the initial term of judges, except judges of probate, appointed to fill vacancies.
