Tell the truth….do you know something about the names competing for judge when you’re in the voting booth? Or does it make you think that a ham sandwich with the right surname might get to wear a robe? The folks behind Judge4Yourself website seek to take the name game out of judicial elections. They'll be on the next Sound of Ideas to tell us how they go about judging the would-be judges. Plus, we'll fill you in on State Issue 1, which would serve to raise the mandatory retirement age for Ohio judges. Join us Thursday morning at 9:00.
