The New Jersey Recall Petition Signature Requirement Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have changed the number of signatures required for a recall petition from 25 percent of all registered voters in the state to 25 percent of voters at the most recent general election. It was primarily sponsored by Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo (D-14) in the New Jersey Assembly, where it was known as Assembly Concurrent Resolution 78. The measure would amend Article I, paragraph 2 of the New Jersey Constitution.[1]

In New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments have two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature can either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions.

ACR 78 was introduced in the Assembly on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Judiciary Committee.[3]
