Judicial Retention Ballot by ert634


									Judicial Retention Ballot

The retention of judges means the nonpartisan re-election of judges who were
already elected by the voters. Under the Illinois Constitution elected judges must
run for retention every six years and receive 60% “YES” votes (of those voting on
judges) to remain on the bench.

The following sitting judges are on the retention ballot. They are listed in the order they
appear on the ballot.

The following web site has ratings of these candidates by a variety of groups:
