Why vote for Judges?

In Florida, Supreme Court and appeals court judges are appointed by the governor from a list of candidates compiled by a nominating commission. Florida law requires Florida Supreme Court justices and appeals court judges to be placed on the ballot in nonpartisan elections every six years so voters can determine whether they should remain on their courts for another six-year term.These are called “merit retention” elections. This year, three Supreme Court justices and 28 appeals court judges will be on the ballot.
