Statewide Judicial Elections

Hey, folks, there is an election tomorrow. Depending on where you live there may be county-wide offices up for grabs, as well as local and school board elections. But statewide there are a number of judicial races. Most of us try to stay out of courtrooms, unless there is a lawyer in the family or you are called for jury duty, but state-level judges rule on topics that affect us all.

It can be a pain to go to the polls but I'll be there bright and early, and today was a lousy day with tomorrow looking the same or worse. Please take the time to vote.

For those on the Democratic side of the aisle, here is a list of judicial candidates running on that ticket (from the PA Democratic Party site). (GOP voters can find their candidates here.)
