The North Dakota Recall Referendum was on the June 25, 1940 ballot in North Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.[1] The measure would have allowed the recall of elected officials by petitions signed by 30 percent of the voters of the previous gubernatorial election. It also would have allowed for a 200 words or less description of the reasons for recalling the official and an equal length defense by the recalled official.[2]
