Number of Recommendations

If a judge requires only one or two recommendations, would it look bad if I submit three recommendations?

Thank you.

Clerk here. I second this. I recently helped hire my replacement and little things like this do actually matter (to varying degrees). It just looks bad if you can't even follow instructions on how to apply to a job.
