In order to qualify the proposed constitutional amendment, supporters were required to collect valid signatures totaling a minimum of 10 percent of registered voters by July 4, 2014. The exact number was based on the number of registered voters on that day. This amounted to at least 125,000 valid signatures. In addition, signatures needed to be collected from five percent of the registered voters in 38 of the 93 Nebraska counties.[2][3]

Secretary of State John Gale (R) said that only one initiative for 2014 - the Minimum Wage Increase Initiative - submitted signatures.[4]
