An Idaho Persons Subject to Military Duty Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Idaho as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have redefined those who are subject to state militia duty to all “able-bodied persons” who are eighteen years or older.[1]

At the time of the proposed amendment, only males between 18 and 45 years old were subject to militia duty.[1]

The measure was introduced into the Idaho Legislature by the Senate State Affairs Committee as Senate Joint Resolution 104.[2]
