Definitions for "Judges"
There are three types of judges in a competition. Stroke judges ensure that each swimmer uses the correct stroke for each race. Turning judges observe all turns and relay take overs. Placing judges decide the order of finishing and act as turning judges at the finishing end. Judges have the power to disqualify swimmers who infringe the ASA Laws and Technical Rules.
At swim meets there are Stroke Judges, Turn Judges, or Stroke & Turn Judges. The stroke judge evaluates strokes and turn judges evaluate the turns. Improper stroke and or turns will result in the judge raising his/her arm for swimmer disqualification (DQ) from the race. All judges are certified through USA Swimming.

In Oregon, the constitution provides that judges of the Supreme Court and other courts shall be elected by the legal voters of the state or of their respective districts for a term of six years, that their compensation shall not be diminished, and that they shall retire at 75 years of age. All judges must be citizens of the United States, residents of Oregon for three years (exceptions noted below), and members of the Oregon State Bar. Supreme Court judges, at the time of their election, must have been admitted to practice before the Oregon Supreme Court. District judges are required to be residents of the county only, unless they are elected in counties with over 500,000 population. In that case, they must be residents for three years. There are no requirements that county judges, municipal judges or justices of the peace be lawyers.
The arrangements for the appointment and removal of Scottish judges are set out in section 95 of the Scotland Act 1998.
