Judgment Day for Judges

Tomorrow is Election Day. Everyone pretty much already knows who they're going to vote for in all the major races, but what to do about all those pesky "Should this judge be retained in office?" questions. How should we know if they should be retained? We've never heard of most of them!

Well, there exists a useful tool to help one make informed choices for these judges. The Nebraska State Bar Association provides the Judicial Performance Evaluation, wherein legal professionals rate the judges on various factors, from legal knowledge to punctuality.

For those of you not in Nebraska, check to see if the bar associations for your states have something similar. They very well might.

And get out and vote tomorrow!
