The National Association of Women Judges "Informed Voters. Fair Judges" project is a nonpartisan voter education project developed to increase the knowledge of our citizens regarding the judicial system because lack of knowledge threatens fair and impartial courts, which are the cornerstone of American democracy.

 

The project goals are to provide educational materials to voters about the role of judges and courts in our American tripartite system of government; to discuss the importance of the state courts to voters' communities, safety, families and jobs; to explain to voters how a state's judicial selection and election systems work; to inform voters that the qualities that make a good judge are fairness, impartiality, and a willingness to decide cases based on the evidence presented and the law — not on political or special interest agendas or out of fear of unpopularity; to help explain to voters that their votes will decide whether their state elects or retains judges who reflect these qualities so that justice will be for all, not a select few; and to apprise voters that they can fulfill their obligation to keep the courts fair by learning about a judge's qualifications and performance record to exercise an informed vote at the ballot box.

 

Your donation will help support this project in the state of Kansas.
