Superior Court Judge
November Election Recommendations Are In

Thank you for visiting the Judge Voter Guide website. Our research and recommendations on the judges are designed to help you cut through the rhetoric, election propaganda and biased media coverage that makes it hard to tell which judges to vote for.

Unfortunately, many judges sitting on California courts may be incompetent, corrupt, lazy or soft on crime.

Even worse, many are political opportunists
who have a political agenda—
they are “judicial activists”

A judicial activist legislates from the bench. Instead of strictly interpreting California law, these judges make the laws. Instead of applying the law to facts, they impose their own values on us all.

The following are the Superior Court Recommendations for California’s General Election 11/2/2010

JudgeVoterGuide.com ranks every aspect of a candidate’s record on a scale of 1 (most activist) to 10 (most constructionist).

Nothing is overlooked, from a judge’s rulings to on-the-record statements to American Bar Association ratings. We also look at their stated positions and contributions as well as who’s endorsing them.

Finally, each judge’s career is considered from a bird’s-eye view. Experience. Integrity. Commitment to community. We even personally talk to the candidates.
