Candidates for Ohio Supreme Court Rated by Non-Partisan Group
Unsure which judicial candidates to vote for in November? Judge4Yourself web site can help sort out the candidates.
Looking for some information on the candidates for Ohio Supreme Court?
Luckily, an independent, non-partisan group has done some resesarch for you. The results of their efforts? Judge4Yourself.com.
There, readers can see ratings by four bar associations of every candidate in contested judicial races.
This fall, Ohio voters will decide three races for Ohio Supreme Court, the state's highest court.
The website is a project of the Judicial Candidates Rating Coalition, a collaboration of the Norman S. Minor Bar Association, The Ohio Women's Bar Association, the Cuyahoga Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
Each judicial candidate who chooses to participate in the ratings process completes a questionnaire and is interviewed by a panel of JCRC member organizations. Afterwards, representatives of each member organization meet separately to discuss the candidates and develop ratings.
JCRC panel members are prohibited from contributing to candidates for judicial office or working on their campaigns.
