The New Jersey Election of Comptroller and Elimination of Auditor Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have made the office of comptroller an elected position and eliminated the office of auditor. Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly (D-35) and Sen. Peter Barnes, III (D-18) were the primary sponsors of identical measures in the Assembly and Senate: Assembly Concurrent Resolution 75 and Senate Concurrent Resolution 11.[1][2]


Path to the ballot

See also: Amending the New Jersey Constitution

At the time in New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments had two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature could either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions. This measure did not receive the necessary supermajority required for a 2014 ballot placement. SCR 11 was introduced on January 14, 2014, and referred to State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee.[3] ACR 75 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to State and Local Government Committee.[4]
