The Cincinnati Bar Association (CBA) released today the results of its 2012 Judicial Poll. Conducted regularly, the judicial poll is a public service project the association undertakes to provide the community with information regarding candidates running for local judgeships on Election Day. This year, a total of 13 candidates are running for various judgeships in Hamilton County.
More than 6,181 attorneys in Greater Cincinnati received a ballot from the CBA. The 8.17 percent who responded rated only those they have personally observed within the last four years. They rated the candidates in four different categories:
- integrity, character and objectivity;
- legal experience, knowledge, and ability;
- respect for and courtesy to litigants, counsel and witnesses; and
Candidates were rated “excellent,” “good,” “fair,” or “poor” in each of these four areas. Results of the poll were tabulated independently by Votenet Solutions Inc. View complete results by clicking here.
“This poll provides voters a view of judicial candidates from those who know the candidates best, the attorneys who practice before them or who have professional contact with them,” said Tony Reiss, 2012-2013 president of the CBA. “We hope this information helps voters in Hamilton County make an informed decision at the polls on Election Day.”
