The Arizona Commission on Judicial Performance Review will hold a public hearing on October 29, 2021, in Phoenix to take comments about the judges on the 2022 retention election ballot. The public hearing will begin immediately following the business meeting which starts at 9:30 a.m. in Room 101 of the State Courts Building, 1501 W. Washington Street.

Members of the public may attend the meeting in person, or by phone, computer, or mobile device. Meeting details are available on the public meeting notice, posted at public meeting notice.

Members of the public who wish to comment on the judges who will be on the 2022 general election ballot, may appear at the public hearing in person, by phone, computer, or mobile device, or may send written comments to the Commission on Judicial Performance Review, 1501 West Washington, Suite 221, Phoenix, AZ 85007-3231.

The public meeting notice and the meeting agenda are posted on the Commission’s website at www.azjudges.info.

Established in 1992 by a constitutional amendment passed by voters, the Commission is charged with conducting performance reviews of judges.  It sets performance standards for judges, decides whether a judge meets those standards, and publishes its findings for voters. 

In addition to holding the public hearing, the Commission surveyed litigants, witnesses, jurors, people who represent themselves in court, staff and attorneys who appeared before Superior Court judges during a specific period of time in 2021.  Surveys on appellate court justices and judges are distributed throughout their term. 

The Commission’s findings will be released to the public before the 2022 general election in the Secretary of State’s Voter Pamphlet. All judges who will appear on the 2022 general election ballot are listed below, but only judges for whom individual voters can cast a ballot will be on individual ballots based on voting precincts. The Commission findings will also be available on the Commission’s website at www.azjudges.info.  Voters will decide whether judges remain in office on November 8, 2022. 

Members of the public may appear at the public hearing in person, by phone, or may send written comments to the Commission on Judicial Performance Review, 1501 West Washington, Suite 221, Phoenix, AZ 85007-3231.  Comments can also be sent through the Commission’s web page at www.azjudges.info and via email to [email protected]. The names and addresses of the speakers shall be required in order to speak. Written comments will not be considered unless legible and unless the name and address of the author is included.
