ANALYSES OF THE STATEWIDE

MEASURES

APPEARING ON THE ELECTION

BALLOT

NOVEMBER 3, 2020

The following analyses are for the

two measures appearing on the

statewide general election ballot on

November 3, 2020. This publication

is required by section 16.1-01-07 of

the North Dakota Century Code to

enable voters to become familiar

with the effect of proposed meas-

ures. The full text of each measure

is available on the Secretary of

State’s website at vote.nd.gov or by

requesting a copy from the Elections

Unit, Secretary of State’s office at

(800) 352-0867, ext. 328-4146, or

from the office of any County Audi-

tor.

Analysis of Constitutional

Measure No. 1

Constitutional Measure No. 1 was

placed on the ballot by action of the

2019 North Dakota Legislative As-

sembly with the passage of Senate

Concurrent Resolution No. 4016

(2019 Session Laws, Ch.536). If ap-

proved, this constitutional measure

would amend and reenact subsec-

tions 2 and 6 of section 6 of Article

VIII of the North Dakota Constitution

relating to the state board of higher

education.

The proposed amendments to sub-

section 2 would increase the number

of board members from eight to fif-

teen; prohibit state legislators, elect-

ed state officials, state employees,

and individuals employed full time by

any institution under the board’s

control from serving on the board;

increase the term of appointment of

board members from four to six

years with the option for reappoint-

ment to a nonconsecutive second

term; and replace the chief justice of

supreme court on the board nom-

inating committee with the secretary

of state. The proposed amend-

ments to subsection 6 would require

the board to meet at least annually

with the head of each institution

under its control.

The estimated fiscal impact of this

measure is $147,000 per biennium.

Voting “YES” means you approve

the measure as summarized above.

Voting “NO” means you reject the

measure as summarized above.

Analysis of Constitutional

Measure No. 2

Constitutional Measure No. 2 was

placed on the ballot by action of the

2019 North Dakota Legislative As-

sembly with the passage of Senate

Concurrent Resolution No. 4001

(2019 Session Laws, Ch.537). If ap-

proved, this constitutional measure

would amend and reenact section 9

of Article III of the North Dakota

Constitution relating to initiated con-

stitutional amendments.

The proposed amendments require

an initiated constitutional measure to

be placed only on a general election

ballot and, if approved by the voters,

be submitted to the subsequent leg-

islative assembly. If the legislative

assembly approves the constitution-

al measure, it becomes law. If the

legislative assembly does not ap-

prove the constitutional measure,

the measure must be placed on the

ballot again at the next general elec-

tion, and, if approved by the voters,

it becomes law.

The estimated fiscal impact of this

measure is none.

Voting “YES” means you approve

the measure as summarized above.

Voting “NO” means you reject the

measure as summarized above.
