How to find out more information on judges in your area

Kansas government has given you a new tool to help you become an informed voter. There is a new website from the Kansas Judicial Branch that offers you the voter a way to learn more about the judges who may be on your ballot for retention in your district.

Go to and input your county to find out the names of judges in your area and to obtain their "report card." The report cards were developed by the Kansas Commission on Judicial Performance.
