JUDICIAL SELECTION COMMISSION
STATE OF HAWAIʻI
JUDICIAL RETENTION EVALUATION FORM, FORM JS-P-081
General Information and Instructions:
The Commission thanks you for taking the time to fill out the evaluation form, and for your valued and
significant contributions to the judicial retention process.
Through the Adobe Acrobat Reader Program, the form is available online through a fillable Portable Document
Form (PDF) file. The form is sent to your computer as a temporary fillable form and does not allow you to save
the information you entered. Filling out the form online does not send the information electronically to the
Commission’s office. You must therefore print out each page as you complete it, and sign the printed form.
Please mail [you are encouraged to use a standard 4 ⅛" by 9 ½" envelope] or deliver the original form to the
Judicial Selection Commission, 417 South King Street, Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, 96813. You may fax the original
form to (808) 538-5205. If you fax the form, you are not required to mail the original form to the Commission.
The due date is stated on the Notice of Petition for Retention in Judicial Office available on the Commission's
home page. Late evaluations will not be considered.
All evaluations received by the Commission are CONFIDENTIAL and reviewed only by the Commission
members/staff. The petitioner does not review your evaluation.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILLING OUT THE EVALUATION FORM:
Click the Highlight Existing Fields button on the top right corner of the form to highlight the fields to enter
your answers. Use the “Tab” key to advance to the next highlighted field or check box. Do not use the
enter/return key, as these keys do not advance you to the next highlighted field or check box.
A scroll bar or black box with a plus sign display if your entry exceeds the number of character spaces allowed.
If you continue typing, the additional information will not print on the form. If you need more space, for your

unavailable, all the information you entered will not be saved and will be deleted. If you print each page as you
complete the page, you will not have to reenter lost information. If the Commission’s website is temporarily not
available, please try the Commission’s website later in the day or the next day.
