Committee on Judicial Elections

In order to maintain the independence, integrity and impartiality of the judiciary in Oklahoma, the Supreme Court has adopted the Code of Judicial Conduct, which governs the conduct of candidates for judicial office under its exclusive supervisory and administrative power over the inferior courts, as provided under Article VII of the Oklahoma Constitution. To facilitate the enforcement of the code as it relates to judicial elections, the Supreme Court now establishes a Committee on Judicial Elections. This new committee replaces the Professional Panel on Judicial Elections, better known as the “Baker Commission.”
