Election Guidelines For Judicial Candidates

The Code of Judicial Conduct applies to judges and judicial candidates. To that end, the documents below provide a brief overview of the requirements and limitations on judicial candidates in Georgia, including incumbent judges running for reelection.


Judicial Candidates can find below a copy of three documents:


1. Canon 4 of the Code of Judicial Conduct;


2. Dos and Don'ts for Judicial Campaigning; and


3. Commission Rule 29.


If you believe that a judicial candidate has committed a violation of Canon 4 of the Code of Judicial Conduct who may submit a complaint online or by mail consistent with the Commission's regular procedure for submitting complaints. Complaints alleging a judicial candidate's campaign misconduct are automatically expedited for Commission review and action under Rule 29.
