The Nevada Employee Paychecks Initiative did not appear on the 2010 state ballot in Nevada as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure was withdrawn. The proposed measure called for prohibiting employer use of employee paychecks for political activities without consent.[1][2]

The measure was sponsored by Save Our Secret Ballot.

Ballot summary

According to the filed petition:[1]

This initiative would change Nevada law and prohibit employers from using any portion of workers' paychecks for political activities without the express written permission of the employee. Written permission would be required to be obtained annually. Improper deductions for political purposes would subject the employers to a fine of no less than $10,000 per occurrence. This act does not apply to deductions for employee benefit, pension, savings, or health plans or to charitable contributions and is not intended to preempt federal law.

Path to the ballot

In order to qualify the measure for the November 2010 ballot supporters were required to collect a minimum of 97,002 valid signatures by June 15, 2010. County clerks would then have had to verify and submit the signatures to the secretary of state by no later than August 4, 2010.[3]
