On Tuesday, voters will not only decide the next president, they will also decide whether certain judges should be elected or retained. In Missouri, some judges are part of the Non-partisan Court Plan; they are appointed to their posts, but voters can decide if they want to retain them. Other judges - like those in Greene County - are elected by the traditional polling method.
The media rarely covers election of judges. So how are Missourians supposed to choose wisely? The Missouri Bar is trying to make the process a little easier for voters with a new Judicial Evaluation Survey. This week, Law in Your Life host Angela Wilson finds out about who is on the November ballot, and how the survey can help Missourians when they vote, from Jefferson City attorney Dale Doerhoff.
