40% of Ohio Voters Didn't Vote in Judicial Races !

Why did 40% of Ohio voters who cast a ballot skip voting in judicial races in the November 2012 election?
The reason many voters gave for not voting for judges was that they lacked information.

The League hopes to make it easier for voters to learn about candidates running for judicial office.

  • Learn more about how to evaluate judicial candidates.
  • Be informed.
  • Then vote!

Do not be confused!

The League wishes to set the record straight. LWV – at local, state, or national level – does not ever endorse candidates running for office. A Stark County candidate in this fall’s election erroneously printed that LWV endorsed him. This error has been brought to the candidate’s attention, and we trust it will be promptly remedied.

Unlike another local women’s organization whose name is similar, the League never supports or opposes candidates or political parties and membership is open to any citizen of voting age.
