Judicial Poll Results

 

During each election year, the HBA distributes a Judicial Preference Poll before the general election, asking members to indicate their preferences for judicial candidates in contested races. In non-election years, the HBA conducts its Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire, in which members are asked to evaluate all elected and appointed judges on a number of professional and ethical questions. The results of these polls are distributed to the media and the public.

Results of the 2019 Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire

Every two years, the HBA conducts a Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire, in which members are asked to evaluate elected and appointed judges on a number of professional and ethical questions, based on personal, firsthand knowledge. Judges who had not actively served at least six months on their current bench as of the date this questionnaire was prepared do not appear on the Judicial Evaluation. The HBA presents the results of its 2019 Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire below. You may view the entire Evaluation or you may view selected courts. The Evaluation results for each judge appear on a separate page. The Evaluation opened on Oct. 21 and closed on Nov. 8. There were 1,276 responses to the online Judicial Evaluation, representing 13.6% of eligible HBA members.
