It can be one of the more difficult choices voters make on election day: how to select the judicial candidates. The Commission sets performance standards for judges, decides whether or not a judge meets those standards, and reports its findings to the voters.
The Commission collects information on how judges perform by distributing written surveys and holding public hearings for people who have first-hand knowledge of the job performance of judges appearing on the 2010 general election ballot. More than 59,000 surveys on Arizona judges were distributed in 2009. The Commission also accepts written comments at any time about the performance of judges.
