Maine voters on November 8 will decide whether to approve a measure that would prohibit the secretary of state from listing candidates for the U.S. Congress once they have served the maximum number of terms. The proposal would effectively limit members of the U.S. House to six years in office during a 12-year period, and Senators to 12 years during an 18-year period. Supporters of congressional term limits believe they are so popular among voters that there is no reason to promote them. Opponents view term limits as a simplistic solution to an inherently unfair electoral process that would be best addressed through campaign finance reform. Details.
