Missouri judicial performance review findings now available
Voters urged to learn more about their judges before they vote Nov. 3
The Missouri Judicial Performance Review Committee today provided Missouri voters with their performance findings for 52 nonpartisan judges who will be up for retention in the Nov. 3, 2020, general election. All Missouri voters will have at least two judges in retention elections appear on their ballot this November.
The committee reviewed the performance of 52 judges including one Supreme Court of Missouri judge, four Court of Appeals judges, 26 circuit court judges and 22 associate circuit court judges in circuits where the judges are appointed under the Missouri Non-Partisan Court Plan. The committee found all 52 judges substantially meet overall judicial performance standards.
“We want to make sure the people of Missouri have good judges who are fair, impartial and skilled,” said Dale Doerhoff, chair of the statewide committee. “Our independent committee provides voters with extensive information about the performance of our judges up for retention to help them make informed decisions.”
