Quick Reference Guide For Informed Judicial Voting

Another election day looms in less than one week, and I know you are racking your brain trying to answer one crucial question:  What judges should I vote for on Tuesday?

The Good news is that once again, I have some cheat sheets for all of you to print and bring to the polls:

  1. Illinois State Bar Association ratings for judicial candidates.  You can see the ISBA’s ratings by county here.  This site will help if you are outside of Cook County.
  2. Chicago Bar Association has a handy pocket guide for you Chicagoans headed to the polls on Tuesday.
  3. Chicago Council of Lawyers is a non-partisian public interest bar association, and they too evaluate judges.

Finally, for those of you who really have nothing better to do, voteforjudges.org has all sorts of great information about judicial elections.  Feel free to pop over if you are somehow curious about such things.

Good luck voting!
