Independent non-partisan help is here. You can get information you need to vote for judges here, at You don't have to wonder, "Who are these people?" We've provided ratings of every candidate, and their photos and short biographies.’s ratings are made by four cooperating bar associations, with the help of dozens of experienced lawyers—many who work in the Cuyahoga County courts every day. Community representatives are also involved in our process. We interview the candidates, and review their answers to our questionnaire. We look at examples of the candidates’ writing, and get the input of lawyers who know their work.’s ratings are non-partisan, and independent. We care only whether the candidates will be competent, fair and trustworthy judges. So we focus on each candidate’s integrity, knowledge, experience, diligence, and community understanding, and on every candidate’s ability to be impartial, even-tempered and respectful to the people who must come to court.
