Again, No Initiatives on Nevada Ballot

Thu, Jun 26 2014 by Neal Hobson

In Nevada, the deadline for collecting signatures has come and gone, with no citizen-initiated measures able to qualify for this November’s ballot. Petitions were circulated on two conservative-backed measures, but both failed to collect the 101,000 required signatures. One measure would have required voters to present a photo ID at the polls and the other would have blocked state government from setting up a state exchange as part of the national Affordable Care Act.

No citizen-initiated measures have qualified for the Nevada ballot since 2006. 

However, there will be three questions on November’s ballot in the Silver State. Two measures deal with taxes – a mining tax hike as well as a margins tax on businesses to provide additional funding for public schools. The third issue is the proposed creation of an appellate court in the state.
