North Carolina Bar Association releases judicial election information

The North Carolina Bar Association has released judicial election information, containing results from the 2011 Judicial Performance Evaluation Surveys and recent Non-Incumbent Judicial Candidate Evaluation Surveys, conducted by the Bar’s Judicial Performance Evaluation Committee and the Administration of Justice Committee; respectively. Both surveys use similar categories, providing North Carolina voters with performance-based information on which to cast an informed vote.  The evaluation program was established by the North Carolina Bar Association Board of Governors in response to a perceived lack of information available to voters in judicial elections.
