Thank you to those of you who used the evaluations of the Chicago Council of Lawyers to help you vote for qualified judges in the November 2016 general election. There were some contested races to fill judicial vacancies, although most judicial elections being decided in the November 2016 general election were uncontested. In addition, there were nearly 60 judges seeking retention to the bench. The quality of our judiciary is a critical part of our democracy, and informed voting for judges is necessary if we are to have good judges who are independent.
