I've been noticing this for years here in my home state of Ohio, and while I think that the elections are horrible, I'm not sure appointments would be better. At the very least truly incompetent/corrupt judges can get removed from the bench by the voters rather than relying on an impeachment procedure from their cronies...

Personally, I like the idea of only voting judges into or OUT of office. Put them on the ballot once and as long as they're doing a good job, they stay on. Then, make them go through a "vote of no confidence" vote every couple of years. No competition, but voters can still have their say to remove bad judges.

I'm sure there's a problem with this, but no one's been able to give me a good reason this wouldn't work.
