READER POLL

How will you pick among judicial candidates on Tuesday?

I just look at their political party

 

  49 (40.8%)

I look at bar association ratings

 

  32 (26.7%)

I pick the familiar-sounding name

 

  8 (6.7%)

No clue as to any of the candidates, so not voting

 

  31 (25.8%)

Total votes = 120

 

Judicial  election is not a good system.
