Website Offers Nonpartisan Information on Illinois Judicial Candidates

A website—VoteForJudges.org—is providing Cook County voters with nonpartisan judicial recommendations from area bar groups. The website was established in 2004 by the Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice and executive director Malcolm Rich suggests that “[v]oters spending 10 to 15 minutes on the website will get a fairly good idea of the candidates.” Fifty-seven Cook County judges are standing for retention this November.
