The Austin Bar has conducted its Judicial Evaluation Poll since 1978.  In 2005, the policy of conducting the poll every two years was established.  The poll gives Travis County attorneys an opportunity to evaluate the performance of area judges – from justices of the peace to federal district judges – with the results released to the public as a community service.  Judges who have been on the bench for at least 18 months are included in the poll.
