Default Judicial Positions?

So any guides for the numerous judicial positions?

if not, i'm just gonna randomly vote based upon how i feel on their name and the little descriptions below their name. i mean do these positions really matter or not?

What county?

CRPA has aguide for LA County. Not sure about others. There's also the conservative Judge Voter Guide put out by Craig Huey. Not to many other guides to go by.

And all offices matter. If you do not understand the candidates or issues in a race, the best thing to do is not vote in that race. Seriously. Don't do crap like just pick random names. You don't have to vote in a particular race.

Bumping this as this voter guide was helpful to me and may be for others.

K5Cruiser,

It would be most helpful to know who had compiled your voter guide.

Vote no on all & vote incumbents out.

I had not seen this site until now that I can recall, but if you scroll down the home page and make it to the bottom, it is pretty obvious where this is coming from, technically and politically.

Thanks, this was helpful for filling-out my mail-in ballot. "Draining the swamp" requires removing activist judges.

These suggestions do seem to hold up upon scrutiny, thank you.

How did you make that determination? I can't find any supporting evidence behind any of these ratings. The questionnaire is very simplistic, doesn't address 2A, and the judges' responses aren't given.

I'm finding very little case evidence (based on google searches) to indicate the 2A stance of some of these judges. The very little that I have seen doesn't always support these choices.

Hoping that you (or others) can direct me to some alternate guide(s)?

From what I recall when looking up how they do the rankings, it's based on judicial philosophy combined with qualifications, not how they vote on a specific issue or list of issues. An originalist or someone with a similar conservative judicial philosophy as applicable to California or in general would be ranked highly even if he never had occasion to make a RKBA related ruling. Judges do a lot more than just deal with gun laws.

Absolutely, judges do a lot more than deal with gun laws. But given the 2A nature of this forum, some of us are not specifically looking for "conservative judicial philosophy" when voting yea/nay on the judges.

While the site posts their questionnaire, most of the questions on it are not yes/no, and they give absolutely no indication of how they grade either the questionnaire or the qualifications (or even what is considered as "qualifications"). Honestly, without that or the candidate responses, it is a whole bunch of b.s.

I've seen some examples in the past. I no longer recall the details, but it made me rely on this guide a lot more than I would otherwise, not that there are a whole lot of decent guides out there for someone with my beliefs. Usually 2-3 per election at most plus the GOP official guides.

Mailers definitely cannot be trusted. A lot of people rely on those for voting in this election and elections in general, unfortunately. I've seen voters who are Republicans take their mailers in the booth and I recognize the mailer as being put out by an organization affiliated with the Democrats, meant to deceive ignorant Republican voters. You see that with online guides as well. This one, IMO, is safer and more reliable and has the right objectives in mind, and where I know who the juducial candidates are without it, it's been pretty spot-on in its assessment most of the time, same with the guide from the same group on other races. It can, however, sometimes be incomplete, missing a race here and there.
