Kentucky Voters Defeat Constitutional Amendment
Kentucky voters defeated a constitutional amendment that would have increased the terms of office for district judges and commonwealth attorneys in each circuit court district.
The amendment would have also increased the requirement for district judges of being a licensed attorney from two years to eight years.
The failure of the amendment keeps the term of office at four years for district judges and six years for a commonwealth attorney in each circuit court district.
As of Wednesday morning, with 96% of votes counted, the measure was defeated by 38%.
