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.
