Bar associations across Tennessee have joined the effort  to educate their members and communities on the upcoming judicial elections. The Memphis Bar Association will launch a Judicial Qualification Poll for August 's contested races, as well as the retention election for  Western Section Appellate Court seats and Supreme Court posts. The Knoxville Bar Association has developed a "Get to Know Your Judicial Candidates"  website to provide information about state judicial candidates. This tool provides a convenient way for Knox County voters to get non-partisan information about candidates so they can make an informed decision at the ballot box. The KBA, working with the League of Women Voters Knoxville/Knox County, has also invited all trial court candidates to participate in a judicial candidate forum on July 17 at the South College Auditorium.
