In 2012 the Equal Justice Foundation began a rating system of justices standing for retention based on the votes of attorneys who submit responses to surveys sent to them by the Judicial Performance Review Commission. The idea was first put forward by the Rocky Mountain News in an October 13, 2002, editorial. Whether a "Retain" or "Do Not Retain" is recommended is based on the criteria:

Retain: More than 85% of attorneys voted to retain;

Marginal: only 80-85% of attorneys voted to retain. In 2014 review this was changed to 75-85% of attorneys voted to retain;

Do Not Retain: Less than 80% of attorneys voted to retain. In 2014 review this was changed to <75% of attorneys voted to retain.
