Who is on the 2020 retention ballot?

A guide to help your vote for judge retentions is listed at CourtFacts.org/elections with questions such as What should I be looking for in voting for a judicial candidate? Court Facts says 'Equal access to justice and fairness are the foundation of our judicial system. In order to remain fair and unbiased, a judge makes decisions based on the law and not necessarily on what the popular decision is. If a judge were to make a decision in a case based upon what others thought the judge should do instead of basing the decision on the law, then the judge would not be fair or independent. Public pressure should not be a factor in a judge making a decision in a case. Fairness, independence, integrity and good work ethic are important factors in choosing a judge.
