Should we change the election of judges? What are the issues? Find out about a proposed constitutional amendment that supports a system of selection and retention of judges that includes: 1) an initial governor appointment, 2) an end-of-term judicial performance evaluation by an impartial board with results made available to the public, and 3) a retention election where voters choose to retain or not retain a judge. This system would provide the voters with judicial candidate performance information to make more informed voting decisions.
