Sec. § 4.025
Terms of justices of the peace.


The term of office of justices of the peace is 6 years. Each term begins on the first Monday of the January next after the appropriate general election.


If the board of county commissioners alters the boundaries of a township so that the proper number of justices of the peace within the township is increased or diminished, the board shall provide an effective date for the alteration such that the number of justices of the peace elected from each township at each general election remains as nearly equal as may be.
