Judicial Elections

The third, co-equal branch of government, the judiciary, generally operates outside the limelight that shines on the executive and legislative branches. That is until there is some landmark case.

During these municipal elections we have the opportunity to vote for judges ranging from local magisterial district judges to county common pleas judges to the state appellate courts. What makes this election so different is that for the first time since the Colonial era we will have the opportunity to vote for three justices of the Supreme Court. With this election goes control of the court for a generation or more. It truly is the most important judicial election in our lifetime.  Not only is this election of the judges and justices vital in what will undoubtedly be a low-turnout year, every vote will count.
