Welcome! The New Mexico Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission was created by the Supreme Court of New Mexico to improve the performance of judges and provide useful, credible information to voters on judges standing for retention. Judges must receive 57% voter approval to remain on the bench.
New evaluations are available on September 11, 2020.
Search judges evaluations since 2002.
Please note there are two places you may be able to vote for judges on this year's ballot. Judicial candidates running in a partisan election (identified by party) typically appear on the front of the ballot, and judges standing for retention typically appear on the back of the ballot, in a section labeled retention. NMJPEC only evaluates judges who are standing for retention.
Please review our evaluations and vote in ALL races and ballot measures - including the judicial retention elections. Your vote does matter!
