Selecting judges to vote for is, for most of us, an invitation to feel inadequate as active citizens of Cook County. Very hard to know who these people are, what are their views on the role of judges within a system most of us have doubts about. Maybe we see passing references to endorsements by various local bar associations. And then most of us vote blindly or we skip voting for judges entirely. Doesn’t feel good.

So we’re proud this week to be partnering with Injustice Watch, an outstanding nonprofit newsroom, and including its 2022 judicial election guide in all of our print editions across the Greater West Side. That’s Wednesday Journal of Oak Park & River Forest, Austin Weekly News, Forest Park Review, Riverside-Brookfield Landmark, and the Village Free Press which covers Proviso Township.

Here is a link to the digital version of the Injustice Watch guide:
