The North Carolina Municipal Annexation Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in North Carolina as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have disempowered the state legislature from authorizing any annexation initiated by a city, town or other municipality unless voters within the proposed area of annexation approve the annexation.[1]

The proposed amendment was sponsored in the North Carolina Legislature as House Bill 79.[2]
