16-331. Election of superior court judges by declared divisions of court
A. In any election at which two or more judges of the superior court are to be voted for or elected for the same term, it shall be deemed that there are as many separate offices to be filled as there are judges of the superior court to be elected. Each separate office shall be designated by the distinguishing number of the division of the court occupied on January 1 preceding the primary election by the respective judges whose terms expire after the general election and on or before the first Monday in January next succeeding such election.
B. The designation shall remain the same for all purposes of both the primary and general election and shall be used on all nominating petitions, nomination papers, ballots, certificates of election and election papers referring to the office. After election and the issuance of the certificate of election, the designating number shall have no further significance.
