JUDICIAL PLEBISCITE RESULTS

In November 2019, the voters of Chester County will vote on whether to retain Judge William P. Mahon for the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County.  In addition, voters throughout Pennsylvania will be deciding whether to retain judges for the Appellate Courts of Pennsylvania.  As required by the bylaws of our association, the Chester County Bar Association conducted a Judicial Evaluation Plebiscite among its members.  The members of the Chester County Bar Association were requested to rate the various judicial candidates seeking retention by indicating “Yes” or “No”.

The Bar Association's Judicial Evaluation Committee sent ballots to nine hundred and forty-seven (947) Association members.  Three hundred nineteen (319) valid ballots for the Common Pleas Judge and one hundred ninety seven (197) valid ballots for the Appellate Court Judges we received.  Under the Association's Bylaws, a candidate must receive enough votes from a majority of those voting provided that at least 25% of the members eligible to vote have voted.  A candidate shall be deemed to have had “Insufficient Ballots Cast” if he or she does not receive the required number of votes as described above.
