After a district judicial nominating commission has nominated and submitted to the governor the required number of nominees for appointment to fill a vacancy in the office of judge of the district court, and prior to the appointment of a successor to such office, any nomination may be withdrawn for cause of a substantial nature affecting the nominee's qualifications to hold office, and another nominee may be substituted therefor; and if any nominee dies or requests in writing that his or her name be withdrawn, the commission shall nominate another person to replace him or her.

Whenever there are existing at the same time two (2) or more vacancies in any judicial district and the nominating commission for such judicial district has submitted to the governor the required number of nominees for each of such vacancies, the commission may withdraw the lists of nominations, prior to any appointment being made, and change any of the persons so nominated from one list to another and resubmit them as so changed, or may substitute a new nominee for any of those previously nominated. The action of the commission in withdrawing nominations may be taken at the same meeting at which nominations are made, or at any later meeting called for such purpose.
