The biannual ISBA judicial evaluation is an anonymous, advisory poll conducted by mail during every election cycle. It is sent to all ISBA members in the circuit or district from which a candidate seeks election. Licensed attorneys who are not members of ISBA, or any attorney outside the circuit or district, may also request a ballot. Opinions expressed in the poll are of those attorneys who chose to respond and do not reflect the opinion of the Illinois State Bar Association, however the goal of the poll is to provide an objective, unbiased review of judicial candidates who are seeking office by those attorneys who work with them every day. Candidates must receive 65% “yes” responses to the question regarding “Meets Requirements of Office” in order to be “Recommended”. Judge Foley was "Recommended" during the last advisory poll, and received the highest marks of all judges evaluated in St. Clair County.
