How Do I Evaluate a Judicial Candidate?

A responsible voter is a well-informed voter, but evaluating judicial candidates can be a confusing process. Here are a few attributes to consider:

  • Integrity
  • Professional Competence
  • Judicial Temperment
  • Experience
  • Service

Where to find the right information:

  • The LBA's 2022 Judicial Candidates Poll shows how Jefferson County attorneys rated the candidates in the primary. You can find that information here.
  • Local publications such as the Courier-Journal and WFPK have special election coverage including interviews with judicial candidates.
  • Attend local forums featuring candidates to hear how their views vary.

LBA has been working with Bonnie Jean Feldkamp, the Opinions Editor at the Courier-Journal, along with the League of Women Voters to publish a series going in-depth in the different judicial candidates. Read them below:
