Constitutional amendment on Tuesday’s ballot

Print More

Voters will be deciding Tuesday whether to amend the Vermont Constitution. The issue is whether the constitution should continue to mandate judges’ retirement at 70 years of age.

The proposed amendment would delete that requirement and give the Legislature the authority to set a retirement age if it chooses. The proposal has won approval from two different Legislatures and now must be ratified by the voters before it can be added to the constitution.
