Judicial Elections

Judicial elections in California are a mystery to most voters. The news media typically provide sparse information on judicial contests, and voter participation in judicial races continues to decline.

The California Voter Foundation is working on providing information about judicial races so that voters have a better understanding of these types of contests. We offer some basic background and contact information for California's judicial branch of government.

Additional information on Judicial Contests:

The Los Angeles County Bar Association has published its ratings of the candidates for contested judical elections in Los Angeles County -- municipal and superior court offices, and the press release and the final report of its Judicial Election Evaluations Committee is now available on its Web page.
