AP Reports Issue 3 Decided, Ohio Opts Out Of Health Care Mandate

Voters in Ohio have approved a ballot measure intended to keep government from requiring Ohioans to participate in any health care system.

The constitutional amendment passed is largely symbolic, coming in response to the 2009 federal health care overhaul, a provision of which mandates that most Americans purchase health care.

Ohio Voters Reject Union Limits

Early returns show that Ohio's new law limiting the collective bargaining abilities of 350,000 unionized public workers has been defeated after an expensive union-backed campaign that pitted firefighters, police officers and teachers against the state's Republican establishment.

Early Returns Show Ohio Voters Oppose Age Limit Raise For Judges

Early returns showed Ohio voters opposing a constitutional amendment raising the age limit for judges from 70 to 75.

With 8 percent of the vote counted, nearly 61 percent of voters had rejected raising an age cap of 70 that has been in place for nearly 40 years. The 1973 law stemmed from a philosophy that age can affect judgment.

Ten percent of sitting judges, including two Supreme Court justices, would face the current age limit within the next six years.
