Search Evaluations

Search Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission (JPEC) recommendations for New Mexico judges standing for retention in 2016 (available September 28). Judges must receive 57% voter approval to stay on the bench.


Please note there are two places you may be able to vote for judges on this year's ballot.  Judicial candidates running in a partisan election (identified by party) typically appear on the front of the ballot, and judges standing for retention typically appear on the back of the ballot, in a section labeled retention.  NMJPEC only evaluates judges who are standing for retention.

Please review our evaluations and vote in ALL races and ballot measures - including the judicial retention elections. Your vote does matter!
