The Nebraska Petition Signature Requirement Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Nebraska as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have reversed a 1994 Nebraska Supreme Court decision which changed the number of signatures required to qualify a petition from a percentage of votes cast for governor in the last election to a percentage of total registered voters.[1]

The petition was filed by Kent Burnbeck on July 23, 2012.[1]

In order to qualify the proposed constitutional amendment, supporters were required to collect valid signatures totaling a minimum of 10 percent of registered voters by July 4, 2014. The exact number was based on the number of registered voters on that day. In addition, signatures needed to be collected from five percent of the registered voters in 38 of the 93 Nebraska counties.[2]

Secretary of State John Gale (R) said that only one initiative for 2014 - the Minimum Wage Increase Initiative - submitted signatures.[3]
