flipping through my voter information booklet for the upcoming state primary and local elections, i'm reminded how much of a joke the election process for superior court judges is. there's seven positions with 19 candidates. only two of the candidates bothered to file a statement to be printed in the booklet (and they're running for different seats). i can only assume that the election results hinge entirely on the endorsement of various organizations like the los angeles police protective league. the metropolitan news-enterprise appears to be the only local media with any coverage of the races. (shame about the design.)
