Dade County Bar Association Releases Results of 2012 Judicial Poll

Each year, the Dade County Bar Association (“DCBA”) conducts a Judicial Poll that allows attorneys in Miami-Dade County to express their opinion regarding the qualifications of incumbent judges and their challengers for judicial office. The Judicial Poll was first introduced by the DCBA in 1941 as a method of identifying fitness for retention of judicial office for Florida Supreme Court justices. This year, online voting was held from June 27 through July 12. 1,439 attorneys returned ballots to the DCBA, although not every judge had that many total votes. The DCBA compiled the results into a report revealing the number of votes each judge and/or candidate received regarding their qualifications. You can find the results of the 2012 DCBA Judicial Poll here.

Incorporated in 1920, the DCBA is the largest voluntary bar association in the State of Florida. Its mission is to promote the administration of justice, enhance attorney professionalism and to cultivate positive relationships among members of the Bar. You can read more about the DCBA here.
