The North Carolina "Mentally Incompetent" Cannot Vote Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in North Carolina as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have disqualified any person who is “adjudicated incompetent” by a state court from voting unless a court determined the person is “restored to competency.”[1]

The proposed amendment was sponsored in the North Carolina Legislature as Senate Bill 668.[2]
