  1. What’s that “Vote Yes on 1” sign for? A ballot initiative for electing all judges?

    We don’t elect our judges in Wyoming, they are appointed. After that, they stand for retention every few years. State judges must retire at age 70. I think that’s a better system, as otherwise judges would almost have to pander to the voters desires, which is not what they are supposed to do.

    1. It was just the graphic I chose. MS still elects her Judges. Appointments only come when there is a death, resignation, or a Judge gets tapped for a new post.
