Statewide Referendums: Philly Traffic Court Retired, But Not State Judges

On the two statewide ballot referendums, the question about abolishing the Philadelphia Traffic Court passed by 59.7 percent.  Although the results don’t count at this stage, the question increasing the mandatory retirement age for judges from 70 to 75 lost, but it was close-- just over 49 percent voted yes and 50.9 percent voted no.
