A newly released video produced by the Iowa State Bar Association explains the importance of participating in the judicial retention vote on Nov. 6. The five-minute video, which features former Gov. Robert Ray and former Lt. Gov. Sally Pedersen, is designed to assist voters who are unclear about what the retention election is and why they should vote in it. "With the ouster of three of Iowa's Supreme Court justices in the 2010 election and the controversy surrounding one of the justices in this year's election, it is crucial that voters turn over their ballots and make their voices heard," Bar Association President Cynthia Moser said.
