Justice of the Peace Courts

Each county's board of supervisors sets the geographical boundaries, known as precincts, of that county's Justice of the Peace Courts.  Generally, these precincts are larger than city or town limits and typically incorporate an entire city or town and parts of other communities.

A Justice of the Peace:

  • Is elected to a four-year term
  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Must be an Arizona resident
  • Must be a qualified voter in the precinct in which duties of office will be performed
  • Must read and write English
  • Need not be an attorney
