Legal With Leah: Judicial Elections

Many say they’re confused about how to make an informed vote for judges. Farm Bureau Policy Counsel Leah Curtis said judicial races are important.

“These people are a big part of how government works in our state,” she said, adding residents may have more interactions with judges than with other elected officials.

The Judicial Votes Count website offers background on judges. According to its website, Judicial Votes Count is a nonpartisan partnership committed to providing Ohio voters with everything needed to make informed choices about judicial candidates, including:

  • Why the candidate is running
  • Their legal experience
  • What judges do
