The Alaska Term Limits Initiative, also known as Measure 4, was on the November 8, 1994 ballot in Alaska as an indirect initiated state statute, where it was approved. The measure supported term limits for United States congressional senators and representatives.[1]

The vote on this measure became moot when the United States Supreme Court decided U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton in 1995.

Text of measure

The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

Initiative Ballot Measure #4
Banning ballot listing - certain congressional candidates - 93LMIT

This initiative would ban ballot listing for some candidates for Congress. It would apply to candidates for U.S. Senator who have, at the end of the current term, been a senator 12 of the last 18 years. It would also apply to candidates for U.S. Representative who have, at the end of the current term, been a Representative 6 of the last 12 years. These candidates may still receive write-in votes. The ban would not take effect until 24 other states adopt similar bans or Congressional term limits. Service in Congress before then would not be counted toward the ban.[2]
