What we do
Commissions on Judicial Performance were created for the purpose of providing voters with fair, responsible and constructive evaluations of judges and justices seeking retention. The results also provide judges with information to help improve their professional skills as judicial officers.
2014 Statistical report
Of the 160 eligible judicial officers, 146 decided to stand for retention in 2014. State and District Commissions performed a total of 148 judicial performance evaluations, of which two judicial officers decided not to stand for retention after being evaluated.
State and District Commissions recommended 142 of 146 (97.3%) judicial officers be retained in office. Of the remaining four, District Commissions recommended three judges not be retained, while another District Commission offered “no opinion” on one judge.
