I want to thank those of you who used for the March 2014 primary. There are some close races and we will post the official results as soon as they are available. We will in the future be providing information for the judicial retention elections that are part of the General Election to be held in November 2014. In the meantime, for information about judicial elections, judicial campaign financing, and other issues relating to judicial performance and integrity, please visit

We at Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice ( are pleased to provide as a nonpartisan voter education website where voters can get information about candidates running to fill judicial vacancies in the Primary and on judges seeking retention on the November ballot. In 2012, received more than 2 million hits.

On March 18, 2014, voters will make important decisions, including who will become our new Circuit Court and Appellate Court judges. Early voting starts March 3rd. We at have posted available judicial evaluations, and we will continue to post others as they become available. For available judicial evaluations, please go to the tab, Judicial Evaluations and Results.

Judges in Cook County make critical decisions that affect millions of lives every year. They protect our rights, and we trust them to apply our laws accurately, fairly, and with compassion. It is worth the time to vote for qualified judges. We hope will help voters in making these critical decisions.
