I am only a Judge trainee, but I will try to answer some of htis.

Yes judges are the ones who vote the Dykes. Their rules say:

First(and most important) judges are supposed to only vote for those
irises they have seen blooming in a garden for more than one year.
Pictures in catalogs do not count.

Each AIS Region is allowed to have only a limited number of judges based
on their membership size. Regions are designed (I think) to try to
balance size.
