The Big Question

Big Question: Choosing The Chief Justice

As written on the ballot:

The Wisconsin constitution currently provides that the chief justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court is its longest-serving member.  The proposed constitutional amendment would instead select the chief justice through an election by a majority of the justices then serving on the Court.

"Election of chief justice. Shall section 4 (2) of article VII of the constitution be amended to direct that a chief justice of the supreme court shall be elected for a two-year term by a majority of the justices then serving on the court?"
