A recent study conducted by the University of Akron Bliss Institute of Applied Politics found that half of all voters don't vote in judicial elections. When the Institute polled for possible reasons for this low turnout, they found that 63% feel that they do not have enough knowledge about the candidate in order to make an informed decision.


Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor wants to change the way voters see judicial candidates and increase voter turnout. She states, “We need to make the judges more visible to Ohio voters and also demonstrate that they are no less valued or no less important than races in the legislative and executive branches.” Join Justice O'Connor on August 12th to learn about voter education in judicial elections.
