Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

Shall the Nevada Constitution be amended to establish term limits for Nevada justices and judges?[1]

The language that appeared in the voter's guide:

EXPLANATION
Justices of the Supreme Court, district court judges, justices of the peace, and all other judges would be limited to two full terms, to one full term and a fraction of a term, or to two fractions of one term. Limits to service by a judge would range from twelve years to less than three years. A limit of three years or less would occur if a judge is appointed to fill a judicial vacancy and then is re-elected to the final two years of the term, as is required to keep the position: this would constitute two terms under the language of the amendment.[1]
