Judges 10:11 - 15
NKJV - 11 So the LORD said to the children of Israel, " Did I not deliver you from the Egyptians and from the Amorites and from the people of Ammon and from the Philistines? 12 Also the Sidonians and Amalekites and Maonites oppressed you; and you cried out to Me, and I delivered you from their hand.

By my understanding, the Israelites would have spoken to God or inquired of Him through the line of high priests descended from Aaron, and God would have responded through the use of the Urim and Thummim that the high priest carried in the ephod (breastplate) that he wore, and that God first instituted the use of in Exodus 28. (As I understand the role of the judges, they were not religious figures involved in the process of speaking to God or ascertaining His will, but were primarily military leaders whom God raised up to defeat Israel's enemies or oppressors, as well as to exercise civil governance during their lifetimes. However, their positions were not hereditary, as would have been the case with a king or other position based on line of descent.)
