New Jersey Public Question Four (2007) appeared on the 2007 ballot in the state of New Jersey as a legislative referral, where it was approved. The New Jersey Constitution struck the words "idiot" and "insane person" from the part of the Constitution dealing with persons who have been deemed mentally incapacitated, and therefore were not allowed to vote. Persons falling under these categories would be then referred to as "person[s] who have been adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction to lack the capacity to understand the act of voting."[1]
