Who do you think should have the greatest input on who is selected to serve as a Justice on the [insert state] state Supreme Court? *

I am now going to read you the opinions of two people. Please tell me which one comes closest to your view.

Person #1: "Supreme Court Justices should be elected by voters because elections hold Justices accountable for their decisions and rulings."

Person #2: "Supreme Court Justices should not be elected by voters because elections put pressure on Justices to make certain decisions and rulings based on public opinion." *
