Meet the Judges: Casting Informed Votes in Judicial Retention Elections
As part of the Salt Lake Chamber's Meet the Candidates Series, we will discuss voting in Judicial Retention Elections. This year, there are 59 individual Judges on Utah's ballots- these retention elections are among the least understood issues voters are asked to address. Utah's Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission evaluates and provides important information to the public to help inform voters about these very important elections. Join our exceptional panel of leaders from Utah's Judiciary and Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission to learn from the experts about the process of judicial retention elections, how evaluations are done, and how to be well informed about the judges on the ballot.
