District 6 Judges - Judicial Retention 6 {_getChooseLabel(this.selections.length)}

In a judicial retention election, for each judge, voters will decide Yes or No for the judge to remain in office. Retention elections focus on the professional competency of Iowa’s judges. District judges serve six year terms. Judges must stand for retention election at the first general election following the judge's appointment, and then near the end of each regular term of office. Information about the District 6 judges is on page 43 of the Iowa State Bar Association Judicial Performance Review report at http://nebula.wsimg.com/37e8c51bd3c12a8b424bd2f0389b2fa8?AccessKeyId=42FEDB903B3EA90283F3&disposition=0&alloworigin=1Attorneys evaluated the district court judges, four court of appeals judges and four supreme court justices on the ballot based on a number of performance characteristics, including knowledge and application of the law and demeanor.
