The North Carolina Judicial Nominating Committee Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in North Carolina as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have created a judicial nominating commission to nominate two contenders for a judicial seat to be voted upon by constituents in the succeeding election.[1]

As of 2014, judges and justices are appointed by the governor and are followed by retention elections.

The proposed amendment was sponsored in the North Carolina Legislature by State Senator Daniel G. Clodfelter (D-37) as Senate Bill 699.[2]
