Judicial Performance Review
Arizona Commission on Judicial Performance Review
WHO JUDGES THE JUDGES? YOU DO! WE CAN HELP.
Voters! Finish the Ballot!

Use the following summary and report by the Commission on Judicial Performance Review (JPR) to Finish the Ballot! The JPR Commission was established by voters to evaluate judges' performance during retention elections. While judges initially are appointed, this report can help you decide whether these judges meet judicial performance standards and should be retained. Which judges appear on your ballot depends on your county and the court on which the judge serves. By using this report to finish your ballot, you will help ensure Arizona's strong and impartial judiciary!

Learn how some Arizona judges are appointed through Merit Selection and rated by the JPR Commission:

Merit Selection and Retention
In 1974, Arizona voters decided that in counties with populations over 250,000 (currently Maricopa and Pima) and for Arizona's Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals, judges would be appointed by the Governor from a list of qualified candidates. The Arizona Constitution directs commissions to nominate candidates based primarily on their merit, with consideration given to the diversity of Arizona's population. Arizona voters then periodically vote whether to retain these judges as their terms expire. This system is known as Merit Selection and Retention.

JPR Commission Evaluations & Report
Created by a constitutional amendment, the 30-member JPR Commission conducts standards-based performance evaluations of judges and reports these results. Most of the JPR Commission's members are not lawyers or judges. This report provides JPR Commission findings, survey results, and states whether each judge in a retention election "meets" or "fails to meet" judicial performance standards.

Judicial Performance Standards
The JPR Commission evaluates each judge up for retention election to assess whether the judge:
  • Administers justice fairly, ethically, uniformly, promptly and efficiently;
  • Is free from personal bias when making decisions and decides cases based on the proper application of law;
  • Issues prompt rulings that can be understood and makes decisions that demonstrate competent legal analysis;
  • Acts with dignity, courtesy and patience; and
  • Effectively manages his or her courtroom and the administrative responsibilities of the office.
Public Input Throughout the Process
This year, as every election year, the JPR Commission sought public input and made its decisions using that input. Attorneys, jurors, litigants, witnesses, and other judges returned over 16,000 surveys on judges. The JPR Commission held public hearings open to anyone wishing to speak about the judges up for retention this year. The JPR Commission accepts signed, written comments about merit-appointed judges at any time.
Every voter can take an active role in this judicial review process; use this summary and report to guide your votes for judges up for retention. After reviewing a judge's information, mark "Yes" or "No" next to the judge's name on the Judge Checklist in the back of this pamphlet. Use this checklist to finish your ballot.

There is a reference to this footnote throughout this document.
FOOTNOTE:
The score is the percentage of all evaluators who rated the judge "satisfactory", "very good", or "superior" in each of the Commission's evaluation categories. Depending on the assignment, a judge may not have responses in certain categories, indicated by N/A (for example, some judicial assignments do not require jury trials). The JPR Commission votes "Yes" or "No" on whether a judge "MEETS" Judicial Performance Standards, based on the statistical information as well as any other information submitted by the public or the judge. Further information on the judges and justices can be found at each court's website.
