I voted today (yesterday, actually, but I didn’t hit post). Did you? Here’s something cool about Missouri elections that I did not know before today, even though I’ve voted in like four of them. Judges are not appointed for life. There were around a dozen judges on our ballot and we could vote whether to retain them or not. Cool, huh? Unfortunately, I was not able to find information that I wanted for the vast majority of the judges, so I had to abstain. For next time I need to find a good source of information on judges and their voting records. Suggestions?

It may not be what you want exactly, but the <a href="http://www.mobar.org/data/j…">Missour Bar Association</a> provides lawyer and jury ratings of judges.

It doesn’t give voting records, but you can tell if a judge is competent. They can be competent and be your political antithesis. And they can be incompetent and be your political friend.
