November 2016 Ratings Now Available!
Before you vote in the November 8 general election, review our independent non-partisan ratings of candidates for Cuyahoga County trial courts and the Ohio Supreme Court. From our ratings page, you can access candidate photos and short biographies, and descriptions of the work of the courts where the candidates seek office. You can vote “all the way down the ballot” with confidence!
Judge4Yourself.com’s ratings are made by four cooperating bar associations, with the help of dozens of experienced lawyers—many who work in the courts every day. 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.
Judge4Yourself.com’s ratings are non-partisan, and independent. We care only whether the particular candidates who are running this year 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.
Guessing can’t assure justice.
