Judicial Retention Elections
It is ultimately our job, as citizens and voters, to ensure the officials that represent us are doing their jobs. Every year we have elections to determine who should represent us in a variety of local, state, and federal offices. It is important that we hold judges to the same standard. It is up to us to determine that the judges who run our courtrooms are highly qualified, of good character, and free from bias. Judicial retention elections allow us to vote on whether judges fit those criteria and should continue to serve. The following resources provide information that will prove helpful as you evaluate the judges in your state. Election day this year is Tuesday, November 8th. Make sure you cast your ballot wisely.
