Not on Ballot
Proposed allot measures that were not on a ballot
This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot
The New Mexico Healthcare Freedom Act did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot by some members of the New Mexico State Legislature. The proposal was attempting to prohibit national health care mandates. The measure was sponsored by Keith Gardner. Legislative session ended without the measure being sent to the ballot.[1][2]

Path to the ballot

According to Article XIX of the New Mexico Constitution, it takes a majority vote of all members of both houses of the New Mexico State Legislature to refer a proposed amendment to the ballot. New Mexico is one of ten states that allows a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.

Similar measures in other states

Groups in Indiana, Minnesota, North Dakota and Wyoming were considering a similar proposal. Two of these states (North Dakota and Wyoming) allow ballot initiatives; in other states, the state legislature would have to vote it onto the ballot using their state's procedure for constitutional amendments.[1]
