The Department of Research and Analysis receives special requests for survey and report generation on data not readily available or normally collected by the State Bar.

Judicial Poll

The State Bar conducted a poll of the contested Supreme Court of Texas, Court of Criminal Appeals, and Court of Appeals district races up for election. This was a non-partisan straw poll of current State Bar of Texas members. It was a preference poll only and had no bearing on the election. The State Bar did not endorse any candidates. If no district race is displayed, this is because your district did not have a contested race. Read the press release. For more information about the candidates, please follow the links below:
