This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but...

Just got my absentee ballot in the mail yesterday.  As is always the case, I'm having a little trouble with "unknown" names on the ballot, namely the judicial nominees.  So, I'm asking anyone from CA with more knowledge than I for help deciphering these nominees:

Who are these judges and are there any hidden mini-Scalias here that I should be aware of?  Mini-Ginsburg I should know about and vote for?  If you got the scoop, let me know.

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE (Vote YES or NO):

Joyce L. Kennard for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court

Carol A. Corrigan for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court

COURT OF APPEAL JUSTICE (Vote YES or NO):

Robert M. Mallano for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division One

Frances Rothschild for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division One

Roger W. Boren for Presiding Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Two

Victoria M. Chavez for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Two

Richard D. Aldrich for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Three

Norman L. Epstein for Presiding Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Four

Thomas L. Willhite for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Four

Nora M. Manella for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Four

Steven Suzukawa for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Four

Laurie D. Zelon for Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Seven

Candace D. Cooper for Presiding Justice, Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Eight

vs.
John C. Guierrez (Administrative Law Judge)

Janis Levart Barquist (Deputy City Attorney)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
