Pursuant to Part 150 of the Rules of the Chief Administrator of the Courts, Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commissions (“IJEQC”) have been established in each judicial district in New York State. The IJEQCs are a statewide network of independent screening panels for judicial candidates. Each IJEQC is charged with the responsibility of reviewing the qualifications of candidates, within its respectable judicial district, who submit a questionnaire and are seeking election to the following New York State Courts: Supreme, County, Surrogate’s, Family, New York City Civil, District Court, and City Court. Each commission has 15 members, comprised of both lawyers and non-lawyers, named by the Chief Judge, the presiding justices of the appellate division, the New York State Bar Association, and local bar associations.

For more information regarding the evaluation process and the candidate’s questionnaire, please go to http://ww.nycourts.gov/courts/ad1/qualifications.shtml and follow the link to the IJEQC.

Candidates seeking to be evaluated by the IJEQC in the first judicial district must submit an original and 15 copies of the completed questionnaire to Rachell Sirota, Esq., Director, Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commissions, 27 Madison Avenue, Room 3908, New York, NY 10010. All questionnaires for candidates seeking election to the above-referenced judicial offices should be submitted by May 23, 2014. However, if, because of hardship or other sufficient reason, a candidate submits a questionnaire within a sufficient period of time before the election, the Commission will make every effort to accommodate the candidate.
