The North Dakota Judicial Selection and Removal Referendum, also known as Number 5, was on the September 3, 1968 ballot in North Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.[1] The measure would have changed the powers of the state judiciary branch. It would have changed the selection of judges from an elective process to a combined appointive-elective system. It would have provided for the retirement, discipline and removal of supreme and district court judges. Additionally, it would have required four of the five supreme court justices to deem a law unconstitutional.[2]
