The New Jersey Marriage Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure, upon voter approval, would have defined marriage as the union between one man and one woman. This would have effectively ended same-sex marriages in New Jersey.[1]

The proposed amendment was sponsored in the New Jersey Legislature by State Assemblywoman Alison McHose (R-24) and State Assemblyman Parker Space (R-24) as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 11.[1]

Path to the ballot

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. ACR 11 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Assembly Judiciary Committee.[2]
