Utah Launches Website For Judge Information
The Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission has launched a website to inform voters of the merits of Utah judges who will be on the ballot in November.
KSL-TV reports that judges.utah.gov allows voters to see a summary of each judge so voters can assess their merits.
Commission Executive Director Jennifer Yim says many voters do not know judges unless they have been in the news, which doesn't lead to well-informed voting. The website allows voters to better educate themselves.
The commission evaluates judges on legal ability, judicial temperament, procedural fairness and administrative performance.
