Why do judges consistently receive low vote totals in local elections?  Perhaps it’s because most of us don’t have a good understanding of the Ohio court system and how the courts impact our daily lives. Join us to discuss how Ohio’s court system works and the challenges and opportunities within the courts that could lead to better outcomes for individuals and the community overall.
