will not appear on a ballot
The Nevada Voter ID Initiative did not appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Nevada as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have required registered voters to present an identification card to an election board office prior to voting.[1]

The measure was filed by Sharron Angle, a former state assemblywoman and candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010. Sharron Angle also filed the Nevada Healthcare Exchange Initiative, which did not make the ballot either.[2]

Supporters failed to deliver enough signatures by the deadline.[3]

Initiative supporters needed to collect at least 101,666 valid signatures from registered voters by July 17, 2014 in order to place an initiated constitutional amendment on the ballot. This is equivalent to 10% of the total votes cast in the 2012 general election. Furthermore, supporters needed to gather 25,417 valid signatures from each of the state's four congressional districts.
