Judgepedia is a project on Ballotpedia.org that provides information about the federal and state judiciaries. Originally located at Judgepedia.org, it was Ballotpedia's sister website until it was fully absorbed by Ballotpedia in March 2015. As part of the Lucy Burns Institute, Judgepedia's mission was to connect people to politics while serving as an objective and useful source of information about the judiciary. All of the information previously included on the Judgepedia website was integrated into Ballotpedia to help readers more easily navigate all types of political information.


Judgepedia was composed of two projects, the Federal Courts Project and the State Court Project.

Federal Courts

The Federal Courts Project, now a part of Ballotpedia, focuses on federal judges at all levels of the courts. It covers judicial transitions and federal vacancies on the Supreme Court of the United States, Court of Appeals, District Courts, Bankruptcy Courts, special jurisdiction courts, and territorial courts. This project also covers notable federal judicial legislation, the United States Department of Justice, the District of Columbia, and federal judicial nominations by president. Each Wednesday, the Federal Courts Project releases the Federal Vacancy Count, a unique look at vacancies on the courts.

State Courts

The State Courts Project focuses on courts under state, county and local jurisdiction. This project covers courts and judges in all 50 states, in addition to judicial elections, judicial selection, disciplinary agencies, budgets and judicial salaries, and more.
