Vote 2014: Judicial Retention
Oct. 14, 2014
In Arizona, judges on the state level and in the two largest counties are not elected, but are appointed. However, every election they are up for retention and can be voted off the court. Judges are rated by those who use the court system, and those results are available for review by voters. In this election cycle, the Arizona Commission on Judicial Performance has issued a rare non-retention for a judge in Pima County. Mike Hellon, chair of the commission, will discuss how you can find out information about judges on the ballot.
