During each election year, the HBA distributes a Judicial Candidate Qualification Questionnaire to members before the primary, then a Judicial Preference Poll before the general election. The results of these polls are distributed to the media and the public. In non-election years, the HBA conducts its Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire, in which members are asked to evaluate all elected and appointed judges on a number of professional and ethical questions.
