LB's voter-enacted term limits law permits two term incumbents to seek a third term but prevents their names from appearing on the ballot.
In November, 2000, LB voters rejected (51.38% voting "no") a ballot measure that would have changed the law to let two term incumbents' names appear on the ballot if they survived a primary write-in election contest.
