For the November 6, 2012 general elections, The New York State Unified Court System has made an online voter guide available for the public with information about candidates for elective judicial office.
The Voter Guide, typically available two weeks before the General Election, covers elected, trial-level judge positions, other than Town and Village Justices. The list of candidates for each position is provided by the State and County Boards of Elections after the judicial nominating conventions take place. The biographical information about each candidate is provided by the candidate. It is designed to help voters make a more informed decision on Election Day.
