The Quorum Court is the legislative body of county government. A member of the Quorum Court is called Justice of the Peace, or "JP," and is elected for two-year terms. The Stone County Quorum Court is made up of 9 Justices representing each of the 9 geographic districts in Stone County. In the event of a vacancy, the Governor fills the vacancy by appointment, and the appointee serves until the next general election. The county judge is the presiding officer over the Quorum Court without a vote but with the power of veto.
