Making it easier to learn about who is running for judge.

Every two years (on the odd number year) Pennsylvania voters are asked to fill judicial vancancies from local courts all the way up to the state supreme court at the ballot box. Most voters show up at the polls on Election Day and have no idea who is running for judge. This website provides a tool for voters to understand who is running, and who they should choose to serve them on the bench.
