How state judges are selected in Texas
How are state judges selected in Texas? Discuss two different methods used in
other states for selecting judges. What are the arguments for each of the selection
methods you discussed? Do you think that judges should be elected or appointed?
Explain your reasoning. How informed do you think the public is about judicial elections
and judicial candidates? If you were voting for a judge, would you research the
candidates and their qualifications or would you vote based on party affiliation?
