Does anyone know which judges to vote for?

Thanks! I would like to know which are endorsed by the Democratic party.

1. That's not necessarily the best guide, especially in Philadelphia.

 

I always check the Bar Association recommendations. Lawyers who appear before judges are reliable gauges of a judge or a potential judge's temperament, scope of knowledge, etc.

The PA Bar Association is an excellent resource:

Also the Phila Bar Association:

2. Thanks so much.

Those judges' races are always befuddling.

3. The county judges are hard, but for statewide courts

I'm voting for all the Dems. Thanks to having a Dem gov, Dem candidates' names appear first on the ballot.
I think I'll vote against retaining Saylor, too, just because he's a Republican although I doubt my little act of rebellion will make any difference.

5. Thank you!

I didn't know anything about Saylor. I will vote NO, too!
