We believe that a qualified and respected judiciary is essential to preserving democracy and the rule of law, and are frequently asked by family and friends for recommendations regarding who to vote for in judicial elections and retentions. It is our pleasure and privilege to share reliable information with you in this regard.
The Judicial Evaluation Committees of the Illinois State Bar Association and the DuPage County Bar Association expend substantial efforts to research the credentials of judicial candidates and survey attorneys and others who have firsthand knowledge of each of the Judges and candidates on the ballot. The Committees’ evaluations of candidates for those judicial positions are at the following links:
ISBA 18th Circuit (DuPage)
ISBA 12th Circuit (Will)
Both are credible resources for you to rely on in casting your vote. Please consider printing them and taking them to polls with you.
Election day is November 3rd. Regardless of how you vote, we strongly urge you to do so.
