Memphis Bar Association 2016 Judicial Qualification Poll

The poll was sent to all licensed, practicing attorneys in Shelby County. Participants were not required to answer every question. The poll asked attorneys to select the one candidate in each race whom they felt was best qualified to serve. If an attorney did not know the candidates’ qualifications or had no opinion, he/she was instructed to mark “no opinion.”
