Iowans Split on Removing Judges

Iowans Split on Removing Judges


A new poll finds that Iowa voters are split over the issue of whether to remove their state's supreme court justices after they established marriage equality in 2009.

All seven judges voted to overturn a ban on same-sex marriage last year, and now three are fighting for reelection Tuesday, including Chief Justice Marsha Ternus. "Thirty-seven percent of likely voters say they'd vote to remove all three justices who are on the ballot this year, while 34% would vote to keep them. Another 10% say they would retain some," according to The Wall Street Journal.

Iowa's supreme court justices face retention votes after their first year on the bench and then every eight years after that.
