"Elimination of state treasurer. Shall sections 1 and 3 of article VI and sections 7 and 8 of article X of the constitution be amended, and section 17 of article XIV of the constitution be created, to eliminate the office of state treasurer from the constitution and to replace the state treasurer with the lieutenant governor as a member of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands?"
The Wisconsin Supreme Court consists of seven justices elected for ten-year terms.
Justices are chosen in statewide elections on the nonpartisan April ballot and
take office on the following August 1. The Wisconsin Constitution provides
that only one justice can be elected in any single year. In the event of a vacancy,
the governor may appoint a person to serve until an election can be held to
fill the seat.
