How do I find the voting record for Judges that are up for retention in my state?

I've tried bing.com, google.com, and even looked on judgepedia. Does anyone know of a website that shows this information?

  • The secretary of state has a website that will give you information on who is on your ballot. Each state is slightly different. But from there you should be able to learn about the candidates.

  • Nope, that didn't help. She doesn't have any info. I guess no news is good news?

  • I didn't mean voting record, I don't know why I wrote that. I meant their record.

    I'm in Oklahoma. They have really horrible state sites!

  • I'm voting absentee so I have all of their names, and I've googled them all, done bing.com, looked on wikipedia, can't find anything about how they've judged and decisions they've made. Two of them I decided were Conservative because of things on wikipedia about them, but the other four I can't find anything except their phone number. :(

  • Laura--Does this help?


    Oklahoma State Courts Network


    Under the "legal dockets tab" I found this:

  • If you don't want to pore through legal dockets, you can also try searching newspaper sites. It will give you a look at coverage of higher-profile cases at the very least.

  • Thanks to both of you! Apparently one of the judges helped pass a bill that would make it illegal to post court records online, and that's why I'm having a hard time finding anything. He said it was for public privacy. :( Am I the only person that looks up Judges' records before voting for retention?
