Memphis, Tenn.— September 11, 2019 – The Memphis Bar Association today released the results of its Judicial Preference Poll for the candidates in the contested City Court judicial and court clerks’ races on the October 3rd ballot.
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.”
“The Memphis Bar Association is pleased to provide this service to members of our community who may not have the opportunity to interact with our judiciary and candidates,” said Memphis Bar Association President Annie T. Christoff. “The poll represents lawyers’ collective opinion regarding sitting judges and candidates but is not intended as an endorsement by the Memphis Bar Association of any candidate.”
