VOTING ISSUE IN PENNSYLVANIA:

VOTING ISSUE IN PENNSYLVANIA: You are going to be asked the following question: 
"Shall the Pennsylvania Constitution be amended to require that Justices, Judges and Magisterial District Judges be retired on the last day of the calendar year for which they attain age 75 years?" 

Currently the PA constitution mandates these judges retire at age 70. If you vote yes, you are voting to extend the retirement age by 5 years. I am not encouraging one way or the other, but the question does not tell you the current status of the law...which is a mandatory retirement age of 70. 

Please share this for your PA friends. If you want the constitution to NOT be amended, you vote "no." If you want it amended to allow judges to serve until age 75 instead of 70, you vote "yes."

This should become an issue and investigated. Who worded this? It is misleading and deceptive. Should have been something like;
"Shall the Pennsylvania Constitution be amended to PERMIT Justices, Judges and Magisterial District Judges to extend their current required retirement of 70 years of age to 75 years of age should they desire." Or something along this line.
OR
'" amended to change the current mandatory requirement of retirement from 70 to 75 years of age"
This is so blatantly manipulative it seems criminal.
Damn politicians are out of control.

I would like to thank whoever posted this information on this site this morning. Otherwise I would have been misled by the wording on the ballot and made the wrong vote (for me). I informed several people at the voting station about this deception and none of them were aware of it. And they all thanked me for the information.
