Becoming educated and informed about non-partisan candidates is a most difficult task for engaged voters in election years like this one.  Of particular concern are our judges, who in their rulings continue shaping precedent for years to come.  How does an informed voter learn enough to select and vote for conservatives who will follow the law and not “legislate from the bench”?

We offer “Arkansas Judiciary 101” to help with that task.  Becoming informed about how the court system works and the people involved in the judiciary system will go a long way to making tough voting choices in non-partisan elections.

“Arkansas Judiciary 101” explains how the court system is structured, which courts cover which types of cases, and which judges are in place now, along with biographical info for candidates for various judicial positions.  Much of the information comes from public sources such as Arkansas Judiciary and Arkansas Legal Services Partnershp.
