Election Day Is November 8: You Be the Judge
View the Illinois State Bar Association's judicial ratings and evaluations by county for the general election on November 8, 2022. The judicial evaluations and polls have been redesigned to be mobile friendly, so they can be easily used in the voting booth, and also accessible to assistive technology.
In Cook County, an ISBA Judicial Evaluations committee used the results of a questionnaire, background investigations, and in-person interviews to rate candidates for all judicial offices. Candidates for the Appellate Court outside of Cook County were also evaluated using this method. Judicial Evaluation ratings express the opinion of the Illinois State Bar Association.
In counties outside of Cook, the ISBA conducted an advisory poll. The advisory poll is conducted by mail and is sent to all ISBA members in the circuit or district from which a candidate seeks election. Licensed attorneys who are not members of ISBA, or any attorney outside the circuit or district, may request a ballot. Opinions expressed in the poll are of those attorneys who chose to respond and do not reflect the opinion of the Illinois State Bar Association or the opinion of all Illinois attorneys.
