The Iowa Judicial Nominating Process Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Iowa as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have eliminated the state and district judicial nominating commissions and established a new procedure for the appointment of persons to the supreme court or district court, where the governor would nominate someone who would then have to be confirmed by the Iowa Senate.[1]

According to the Iowa Constitution, the Iowa General Assembly must vote and pass the amendment by a simple majority in two successive general sessions to put the proposed amendment on a statewide ballot. The measure was not voted upon in the preceding two secession before the 2014 general election. Thus, the measure will not appear on the ballot.[1]
