State Bar of Texas Judicial Poll

At the direction of the Supreme Court of Texas, the State Bar of Texas has conducted a poll of the contested Supreme Court, Court of Criminal Appeals, and courts of appeals district races on the 2024 primary election ballot.

This is a nonpartisan straw poll of current State Bar members. It is a preference poll only and has no bearing on the election. Results of the judicial poll should not be viewed as an endorsement by the State Bar of Texas, which does not endorse or oppose candidates.
