To help judicial candidates in their elections, a new website, RunningForJudge.info, has been launched to share information about the campaign process.
Judges across the United States make important decisions daily that can affect the lives of all citizens. Before they enter the voting booth, voters need to know more about the judicial candidates on the ballot than just a name and affiliated party. In most places, however, before someone can become a judge, they must be elected to the position.
In the United States, most judges are selected by popular election, a tradition that goes back to Jacksonian populism. Supporters claim the process holds judges accountable and responsive to the will of the people. To help judicial candidates in their elections, a new website, http://RunningForJudge.info, has been launched to share information about running for judge and the campaign process.
The costs of campaigns have risen in recent years. Some local judicial races now cost thousands of dollars. Advertising and printing costs comprise a large portion of a campaign budget. Whether the campaign is self-funded or an organized campaign, raising funds is more important than ever.
The website contains articles covering subjects such as the types of court judges, why run for judicial office, eligibility requirements for sitting on the bench, common election issues, resources and more. The site also focuses on online strategies, including creating and using campaign websites, social media and online fundraising.
RunningForSheriff.info is an informational service of OnlineCandidate.com.
Online Candidate provides candidates with affordable campaign websites. Each package includes a domain name and hosting, along with a content management system that allows for easy content addition and updates. Built-in tools allow campaigns to accept donations, recruit supporters, add events, upload photos, build an e-mail list, run a poll and more.
