Voters in Baltimore, MD and North Dakota don’t often share a lot in common, but earlier this month they both supported measures making term limits the law in their respective jurisdictions.

Baltimore residents passed a measure creating term limits for city elected officials with more than 70 percent of voters supporting a two-term limit for mayor, comptroller, city council president and council members.

Voters in North Dakota approved an amendment to the state’s constitution that will limit legislators to eight years in the state House and Senate and restrict governors to two terms.

Supporters of term limits have said the two results show how term limits unite voters in a far-left city like Baltimore with far-right voters like those of North Dakota.
