ELECTION DAY: Some Judges Deserve Your "No" Vote

It's election day. The Cook County ballot is stuffed with its usual long list of judges and judicial candidates.

Even if you skip the rest of the judges, please consider voting "no" on these candidates who aren't even recommended by Chicago-area lawyers.

  1. Vote no for all of them.

  2. I saved time and voted them all No. Not a single person in this state deserves to keep their office.

  3. Even if some of them do deserve to stay, voting no is probably the right option if you don't want to do the actual research on 30 different judges.

    These guys get overwhelmingly confirmed, so if the guy deserves to keep his office, no way is your No vote going to hurt him. But if he sucks, *maybe* there will be enough no votes to get rid of him. He will probably still get confirmed, but your No vote can only help!

  4. Thanks for sharing this....

    On a somewhat related topic, there were two guys outside the polling site at Hawthorne Academy this morning asking for my signature to get l'il Tommy Tunney back on the ballet for alderman. "No thanks guys - I'm hoping he gets booted for gross incompetence." Blank stares of shock followed....

  5. Thanks for all that you do! One huge request, please can you post this kind of info of early voters, so post it the day before early voting? I am an early voter and told someone that I wished your website would give info so we could vote no for those lazy judges who keep us in harm's way, you do post it but too late for people like me!

    1. You're welcome. We originally posted the list on October 26. It's important stuff and we will find a way to push it more when the next cycle comes around (although, we hope that we won't need to be doing this 2 years from now).
