Geauga bar polled on judicial candidates

Eighty-nine responses out of 179 ballots were returned by the deadline, representing 50 percent of the Association. Three ballots were not included due to discrepancies.

The poll results are not to be interpreted as an endorsement of any candidate, but are solely a compilation of the responses of the voting members, the press release stated.
