Campaign Oversight

The Judicial Campaign Conduct Committee was created in 2005 at the initiative of the chief justice. The committee includes attorneys, retired judges, and members of the business community. The committee asks candidates to sign an agreement to abide by Standards for the Conduct of Contested Judicial Election Campaigns. The committee receives complaints about candidate behavior and issues public statements as necessary. The committee also works to educate the public regarding the specific role that judges play in our society.
