Now more than ever, it's time to put
Patriotism before Politics
Meet Judge

Sarah Smith

With over 25 years of military experience, well over a decade of litigation experience, and five years on the bench, Judge Sarah Smith has continuously put service over self and dedicated her life to serving her beloved country. She is lifelong resident of Madison County, she is a patriot, and she has risked her life to defend the United States Constitution. 

Sarah understands what partisan politics has done to our country at the national level and she refuses to give it a place in the Courtroom. Sarah was appointed Associate Judge in 2015. Because of her honesty, integrity, and reputation for always doing the hard-right thing Judge Smith won her election for Circuit Court Judge in 2018 by overwhelming bipartisan support. Now, she’s running for 5th District Appellate Court Judge to continue her lifetime commitment to service and justice and to prove to the citizens of Southern Illinois that she is a candidate who loves her country and her community and who is willing to put patriotism over political partisanship.
