Federal Appellate Judges Federal appellate judges are appointed by  the President of the United States and are  subject to Senate confirmation. They are nominated and appointed for by  the President with the advice and consent  of the Senate. This means that the  President’s candidates must pass review  by the Senate.

State Appellate Judges State level appellate judges obtain their positions  through a variety of ways Under the merit system, judges are appointed by the  governor with input from a judicial nominating  commission composed of judges, lawyers, and lay  citizens. Although free to choose whichever candidate heor she  prefers, the governor is limited to the names on the list.  After their appointment, judges selected through the  merit system are subject to a confirmation election in  which the voters are asked whether the judge should be  retained
