2020 Judicial Election Guide

On Nov. 3, voters in Illinois will go to the polls for the 2020 general election. Among other, more prominent races, they’ll find a handful of competitive judicial races and dozens of sitting judges who will be up for retention.

Judges play a critical and powerful role in society. But many voters know little about the people at the bottom of their ballot.

For that reason, every election cycle, Injustice Watch compiles a voter guide with information about the people running for judge—and those running to retain their seats on the bench—in Cook County. We search public documents, scour judicial records, and compile bar association ratings to provide the most in-depth guide to Cook County voters. We don’t make recommendations or endorsements. Rather, we provide as much information as we can so voters can make an informed decision.

Our guide for the 2020 judicial elections will be out in the fall. To make sure you don’t miss it, use the form below to sign up for our newsletter.
