Utah Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission

Utah Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission and Courtroom Observation Program

Have you ever asked yourself, "How can anyone expect me to make an informed voting decision about judges?"

Have you ever felt frustrated because you didn't know enough about the judges?

If so, you've come to the right place!

What you can learn on this site:

  • How attorneys, court staff, and jurors rated each judge;
  • How courtroom observers - laypersons like you - evaluated each judge;
  • Whether the Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission recommended the judge for retention in the next election.

In all even-numbered years, the voters of Utah choose whether or not judges keep their jobs for another term in office. By reviewing the reports on this site, you will have the information you need to decide whether each judge should be retained in office for another term.
