The North Dakota Simplified Initiative and Referendum Process Initiative, also known as Amendment to Section 25 on Initiative and Referendum, was on the November , 5 1918 ballot in North Dakota as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1]

The measure changed the required signatures to 10,000 for initiating a statutory measure and to 7,000 for referring legislation actions and providing that initiated measures would go directly to a vote of the people. This measure simplified the original initiative and referendum process established in 1914.[2]
