The problem with voting for judges is, they are not allowed to give opinions. So they can't debate. There really isn't much to go on except lawyers experience with the judges, but then you have to trust the lawyers. And then if you ask two lawyers you know they might have competing opinions. At one time I did judge interviews for endorsements with a C3, and you could tell a lot by the kind of questions we asked. If you don't know which judge to vote for, I am tempted to say do not vote for any. But enough people will be voting for them that know even less than you, they will be voting on just the vowels in their name.
I tend to vote for incumbents -- Judges that have been in office for a long time. I always would look at the bar judicial poll, but I don't see one for this year on the Dade County Bar Association Website. I went to many of the websites/facebook pages of the candidates. Honestly, you can make a decision if you look at both of them together and read about them. It helped me. I decided on Wendell Graham from reading his website and I decided against Elena Ortega-Tauler from reading hers.
