The Columbus Bar annual Preference Poll results for candidates running for election in the Common Pleas, General and Domestic/Juvenile Division courts are in. This information is not intended as an endorsement for candidates, but as a service to help voters make an informed decision when voting for judicial candidates.
Polling ballots were sent to more than 8,000 attorneys in Franklin County. Respondents were asked to indicate the candidate they preferred. Of the ten judicial races being decided on Nov. 6 in Franklin County, two are contested. A total of 711 votes were cast for the candidates. The poll was conducted online by VoteNet Solutions and a statement included with the ballot requested that attorneys without “sufficient current knowledge or information about the candidates” abstain from voting in the poll.
