Arizona Elections Review

Most of us can make up our minds about the most advertised elections, but it's difficult to find good information about the judges' races.

This entry covers only the judges on the ballot.

Here are the ones I will vote to retain and those I won't.  Those I'm voting for were either recommended as conservative or appointed by conservative governors:
