SCR 6.020 Questionnaires
(1) Each person whose name is submitted shall be sent a questionnaire in a form approved by the Supreme Court. It shall be designed to elicit information about the potential nominee concerning his qualifications, experience and interests bearing upon his fitness for the judicial office, and a statement to the effect that by submitting the questionnaire the applicant agrees to accept the appointment of the governor should he be so selected. The questionnaire shall be subscribed and dated by the applicant and returned to the commission.
(2) If a name is submitted by someone other than the applicant himself, a letter from the chief justice or his designee shall be included with the questionnaire, stating that the applicant's name has been submitted and that he should complete and return the enclosed questionnaire if he is willing to be considered.
(3) As questionnaires are returned, they shall be photocopied and distributed to each member of the commission. The names of applicants to whom questionnaires have been directed but not yet returned shall be made available to the members of the commission upon request, or may be distributed to the members at any time by the chief justice or his designee.
