What’s the point of judicial elections?

I’m off this week but here’s something to think about if you so choose.

I filled out my absentee ballot this weekend, making sure to turn the ballot over so I could ignore the judicial races on the back, all of which (other than the Minnesota Supreme Court) feature a judge I know nothing about (except for the ex-politicians) who are running unopposed.

In my district, the race for Water and Soil Conservation Commission is hotter.

Enjoy your week.
