    Subd. 4. Determination of a judicial vacancy. (a) When a judge of the district court dies,

attorneys in the affected district, shall determine within 90 days of receiving notice of a vacancy
from the governor whether the vacant office is necessary for effective judicial administration or
is necessary for adequate access to the courts. In determining whether the position is necessary
for adequate access to the courts, the Supreme Court shall consider whether abolition or transfer
of the position would result in a county having no chambered judge. The Supreme Court may
continue the position, may order the position abolished, or may transfer the position to a judicial
district where need for additional judges exists, designating the position as either a county,
county/municipal or district court judgeship. The Supreme Court shall certify any vacancy to the
governor, who shall fill it in the manner provided by law.
(b) If a judge of district court fails to timely file an affidavit of candidacy and filing fee or
petition in lieu of a fee, the official with whom the affidavits of candidacy are required to be filed
shall notify the Supreme Court that the incumbent judge is not seeking reelection. Within five
days of receipt of the notice, the Supreme Court shall determine whether the judicial position
is necessary for effective judicial administration or adequate access to the courts and notify the
official responsible for certifying the election results of its determination. In determining whether
the position is necessary for adequate access to the courts, the Supreme Court shall consider
whether abolition or transfer of the position would result in a county having no chambered judge.
The Supreme Court may continue the position, may order the position abolished, or may transfer
the position to a judicial district where the need for additional judgeships exists. If the position is
abolished or transferred, the election may not be held. If the position is transferred, the court shall
also notify the governor of the transfer. Upon transfer, the position is vacant and the governor
shall fill it in the manner provided by law. An order abolishing or transferring a position is
effective the first Monday in the next January.
    Subd. 4a. Referee vacancy; conversion to judgeship. When a referee of the district court
dies, resigns, retires, or is voluntarily removed from the position, the chief judge of the district
shall notify the Supreme Court and may petition to request that the position be converted to a
judgeship. The Supreme Court shall determine within 90 days of the petition whether to order
the position abolished or convert the position to a judgeship in the affected or another judicial
district. The Supreme Court shall certify any judicial vacancy to the governor, who shall fill it
in the manner provided by law. The conversion of a referee position to a judgeship under this
subdivision shall not reduce the total number of judges and referees hearing cases in the family
and juvenile courts.
    Subd. 5. Judicial employees. The complement for the law clerk and court reporter assigned
exclusively to a judgeship that is abolished under this section is abolished upon vacancy of the
position. The complement for the law clerk and court reporter shall be transferred to the judicial
district to which a judgeship is transferred pursuant to this section.

2.724 CHIEF JUSTICE OF SUPREME COURT, DUTIES.
    Subdivision 1. Appointments. When public convenience and necessity require it, the chief
justice of the Supreme Court may assign any judge of any court to serve and discharge the duties
of judge of any court in a judicial district not that judge's own at such times as the chief justice
may determine. A judge may appeal an assignment to serve on a court in a judicial district not
that judge's own to the Supreme Court and the appeal shall be decided before the assignment is
effective. Notwithstanding the provisions of this subdivision, no judge shall be assigned to serve
on a court in a judicial district which is located more than 50 miles from the boundary of that
judge's judicial district for more than 15 working days in any 12-month period, unless the judge
consents to the assignment.
A transferred judge shall be subject to the assignment powers of the chief judge of the
judicial district to which the judge is transferred.
    Subd. 2. Procedure. To promote and secure more efficient administration of justice, the chief
justice of the Supreme Court of the state shall supervise and coordinate the work of the courts of
the state. The Supreme Court may provide by rule that the chief justice not be required to write
opinions as a member of the Supreme Court. Its rules may further provide for it to hear and
consider cases in divisions. It may by rule assign temporarily any retired justice of the Supreme
Court or one judge of the Court of Appeals or district court judge at a time to act as a justice of the
Supreme Court or any number of justices or retired justices of the Supreme Court to act as judges
of the Court of Appeals. Upon the assignment of a Court of Appeals judge or a district court judge
to act as a justice of the Supreme Court, a judge previously acting as a justice may complete
unfinished duties of that position. Any number of justices may disqualify themselves from hearing
and considering a case, in which event the Supreme Court may assign temporarily a retired justice
of the Supreme Court, a Court of Appeals judge, or a district court judge to hear and consider the
case in place of each disqualified justice. A retired justice who is acting as a justice of the Supreme
Court or judge of the Court of Appeals under this section shall receive, in addition to retirement
pay, out of the general fund of the state, an amount to make the retired justice's total compensation
equal to the same salary as a justice or judge of the court on which the justice is acting.
    Subd. 3. Retired justices and judges. (a) The chief justice of the Supreme Court may
assign a retired justice of the Supreme Court to act as a justice of the Supreme Court pursuant
to subdivision 2 or as a judge of any other court. The chief justice may assign a retired judge
of any court to act as a judge of any court except the Supreme Court. The chief justice of the
Supreme Court shall determine the pay and expenses to be received by a judge acting pursuant to
this paragraph.
(b) A judge who has been elected to office and who has retired as a judge in good standing
and is not practicing law may also be appointed to serve as judge of any court except the Supreme
Court. A retired judge acting under this paragraph will receive pay and expenses in the amount
established by the Supreme Court.
    Subd. 4. State court supervision. The chief justice shall exercise general supervisory
powers over the courts in the state, with powers including, but not limited to:
(a) Supervision of the courts' financial affairs, programs of continuing education for judicial
and nonjudicial personnel and planning and operations research;
(b) Serving as chief representative of the court system and as liaison with other governmental
agencies for the public; and
(c) Supervision of the administrative operations of the courts.
The chief justice may designate other justices or judges to assist in the performance of duties.

2.91 REDISTRICTING PLANS.
    Subdivision 1. Distribution. Upon enactment of a redistricting plan for the legislature or
for Congress, the Legislative Coordinating Commission shall deposit the plan with the secretary
of state. The secretary of state shall provide copies of the relevant portions of the redistricting
plan to each county auditor, who shall provide a copy of the relevant portions of the plan to
each municipal clerk within the county. The secretary of state, with the cooperation of the
commissioner of administration, shall make copies of the plan file, maps, and tables available
to the public for the cost of publication. The revisor of statutes shall code a metes and bounds
description of the districts in Minnesota Statutes.
    Subd. 2. Corrections. The legislature intends that a redistricting plan encompass all
the territory of this state, that no territory be omitted or duplicated, that all districts consist of
convenient contiguous territory substantially equal in population, and that political subdivisions
not be divided more than necessary to meet constitutional requirements. Therefore, in
implementing a redistricting plan for the legislature or for Congress, the secretary of state, after
notifying the Legislative Coordinating Commission and the revisor of statutes, shall order the
following corrections:
(a) If a territory in this state is not named in the redistricting plan but lies within the
boundaries of a district, it is a part of the district within which it lies.
(b) If a territory in this state is not named in the redistricting plan but lies between the
boundaries of two or more districts, it is a part of the contiguous district having the smallest
population.
(c) If a territory in this state is assigned in the redistricting plan to two or more districts, it is
part of the district having the smallest population.
(d) If a territory in this state is assigned to a district that consists of other territory containing
a majority of the population of the district but with which it is not contiguous, the territory is a
part of the contiguous district having the smallest population.
(e) If the description of a district boundary line that divides a political subdivision is
ambiguous because a highway, street, railroad track, power transmission line, river, creek, or
other physical feature or census block boundary that forms part of the district boundary is
omitted or is not properly named or has been changed, or because a compass direction for the
boundary line is wrong, the secretary of state shall add or correct the name or compass direction
and resolve the ambiguity in favor of creating districts of convenient, contiguous territory of
substantially equal population that do not divide political subdivisions more than is necessary to
meet constitutional requirements.
    Subd. 3. Notice of corrections. The secretary of state shall provide a copy of each correction
order to each affected county auditor, municipal clerk, and candidate.
    Subd. 4. Recommendations to legislature. The secretary of state and the revisor of statutes
shall recommend to the legislature any additional technical corrections to the redistricting plan
they deem necessary or desirable.
