Georgia voters will decide on Nov. 8 whether they want to change the makeup of the Judicial Qualifications Commission,  the agency that investigates ethics complaints against Georgia judges.

State lawmakers would get to appoint the majority of the seven-member board if the amendment passes. Currently, they appoint none. The board members serving now were appointed by the State Bar Association, the state Supreme Court and the governor. 

"This American Life" producer Dave Kastenbaum reported on how Amendment 3 made it onto the ballot and what’s at stake for lawmakers, judges and the public. You can hear the full segment above, courtesy of "This American Life."
