Judges make important decisions every day that affect your life.
The Pennsylvania Bar Association has created PAVoteSmart to help you better understand the functions of the commonwealth's judges and courts.
In addition, for registered voters, PAVoteSmart serves as an information source about judicial candidates when electing new judges and during balloting for merit-retention of appellate and common pleas judges.
PAVoteSmart is wholly nonpartisan, and a candidate's listing does not constitute an endorsement of any candidate by the Pennsylvania Bar Association.

Pennsylvanians Will Have a Choice in the April Primary to Extend the Mandatory Retirement Age for Judges to 75
