Pursuant to House Bill 20-1026, effective January 7, 2025, the counties of Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln will move from the eighteenth judicial district to a newly created twenty-third judicial district. Under the state constitution, district judges serve the term to which they were elected but may serve in another judicial district if the other district encompasses the county of the judge's residence. Under this measure, by November 30, 2024, the governor would designate judges serving in the eighteenth judicial district to serve the remainder of their terms in the twenty-third judicial district. All judges so designated shall establish residency in the twenty-third judicial district by January 7, 2025.
