1. You can Google the judges full name and find results
I found some good information on some of the judges that helped me make up my mind about each of them.

2. I Generally Follow the Recommendations in the Blue Book
If the lawyers who work with a judge think he or she should be retained, I vote "Yes". If they think the judge should go, I vote "No".

3. I went to www.courts.st.co.us
Lots of info

still don't really know where they stand - I DO NOT believe that some will make rulings devoid of their political leanings. It is very difficult to find where some of them stand. I voted for one based on the fact that he went to Berkely. Hope he was not the lone freeper.

4. I voted to keep that judge, too
And there was a web site about him that had a blurb about him taking on some interesting cases on the behalf of workers. Maybe it was the same site. It was helpful to search and find information albeit sparse. I still felt that I made a more informed decision this year.
