The Independent Judicial Election Commissions
(IJEQCs) are a statewide network of independent screening panels for judicial candidates. The screening process is designed to ensure that voters are provided with as much information as possible about the qualifications of candidates for judicial office. Each IJEQC is responsible for reviewing the qualifications of candidates within its respective judicial district who are seeking public election to New York State Supreme Court, County Court, Surrogate's Court, Family Court, New York City Civil Court, District Court or City Court. The Commissions publish a brochure--Electing Judges in New York State: You Can be An Informed Voter
as well as a 2012 Voter Guide
