The Nevada Secret Ballot Amendment did not make the 2012 statewide ballot in Nevada as an indirect initiated state statute. The measure proposed protecting the right to secret ballots in union representation elections.[1][2]

Initially the measure was proposed for the November 2, 2010 ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment but five days prior to the June petition drive deadline, supporters announced they did not have sufficient signatures. Proponents said they planned to refile the measure as an indirect initiated state statute. If the petition had been successful and legislature had not approved the proposed measure, then it would have appeared on the 2012 ballot.[3] The initiative was formally filed on July 15, 2010.[4]

The measure was sponsored by Save Our Secret Ballot. The same initiative was filed in Arizona, Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado, and Utah.

Text of measure

Petition text

According to the filed petition, the text read:[5]

The People of the State of Nevada do enact as follows:
The Constitution of Nevada is amended by adding Section 23 to Article I to read:
Secret ballots in elections for employee representative.
The right of individuals to vote by secret ballot is fundamental and shall be guaranteed where local state, or federal law permits or requires elections, designations, or authorizations for employee representation.

2012 effort

On July 15, 2010 supporters filed an indirect initiated state statute in an effort to qualify for the 2012 ballot. In order to qualify, supporters needed to collect 97,002 valid signatures by November 9, 2010 to send it to the 2011 legislature.[4][3]

2010 effort

Originally the measure was proposed for the 2010 ballot but as of June 10, 2010 supporters announced they did not have sufficient signatures and instead would re-file the measure as an indirect initiated state statute.[3] In order to qualify for the November 2010 ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment supporters were required to collect a minimum of 97,002 valid signatures by June 15, 2010. County clerks were then required to verify and submit the signatures to the secretary of state by no later than August 4, 2010.[6]
