Judicial Evaluations

The results of the 2018 Primary Judicial Advisory Polls (outside Cook County) and Judicial Evaluations (Cook County and Appellate Court outside Cook County) will be available on or before Friday, February 23, 2018.

Methods ISBA uses to rate candidates

For most judicial offices, ISBA will provide either an evaluation or a poll rating. In the case of Supreme and Appellate court candidates outside of Cook County, ISBA provides both evaluation and poll ratings. Evaluation ratings, which are the result of an in-depth review of candidates, represent the opinion of the ISBA. Judicial Advisory Poll ratings are the opinion of those attorneys who chose to respond and do not reflect the opinion of the ISBA or the opinion of all Illinois attorneys.
