If you have feedback, corrections or questions, we want to hear from you. Please use this form to share your thoughts with us. Your feedback is how we can ensure that this tool meets the needs of Clevelanders.

Judicial survey questions were submitted by community members. Candidate survey responses were lightly edited for consistent punctuation and clarity.

Information about judges and candidates was collected by Cleveland Documenters, Signal Cleveland, and The Marshall Project. Candidate names are presented as they will appear on the ballot.

Information sources include the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court website, Judge4Yourself, Judicial Votes Count, current and past campaign websites, and news articles.


Clevelanders, community organizations, and Documenters all played a critical role in informing our process. We thank them for their generous time and feedback as we designed and developed this community tool.
