Great! We have just the thing to assist you in your quest to be a better informed voter.
The New York State Unified Court System has issued their online voter guide. The guide also offers links to independent reviews of judges and candidates by separete judicial commissions.
You will notice that, in the race for Supreme Court in the 11th Judicial District in Queens, three out of the five candidates responded to the voter guide survey, while a number of Civil Court races are uncontested.
Only one candidate responded to the survey for the Supreme Court seat in the 1st Judicial District in Manhattan; three other candidates failed to do so.
Don't forget to tune back to Gotham Gazette during the week of November 5 for our Guide For the Last Minute Voter.
