2020 Judicial Preference Poll

An email with a link to the 2020 Judicial Preference poll was sent on Feb. 3, 2020 from noreply@ballotboxonline.com to members of ACDLA and those Austin Bar members whose dues were paid as of Jan. 27, 2020.  If you didn’t get yours, please check your spam filter. If you still can’t find it, add the email address to your safe senders list and contact the Austin Bar office to make sure we have the correct email address on file. Another email with a link to the ballot will be sent to you. The poll will close at 5 p.m. on Fri. Feb. 14. No Bar Card numbers are required.

The private preference poll allows members of the Austin Bar and ACDLA to rate candidates who will appear on the ballot in the March primary. The poll includes 16 candidates in seven contested Travis County judicial races, and four candidates in each of the races for District Attorney, County Attorney, and Sheriff.

The results of the poll will be released to the press. The purpose of the poll is to give the general public an opportunity to see how local attorneys evaluate their colleagues in the legal community. For each race, Austin Bar and ACDLA members are asked to indicate which candidate they believe is best qualified to serve in the position for which he or she is running.

The results are strictly the opinions of the individual attorneys participating in the poll and are not intended as an endorsement of any candidate(s) by the Austin Bar Association, ACDLA, or any affiliated organization.
