Credited. I think there are some courts that have hub-websites where you can just upload your resume/etc., but that's a rare thing.

You realize judges work independently, right? It's not like sending applications to 10 partners in the same firm. You only work for one judge at a time, so you need to apply to each of them separately.

Make sure to write your letter without capitalization or spelling out words complety, too. Judges appreciate brevity.
