The Alaska Term Limits Measure was an initiated state statute supporting U.S. Congressional term limits. It was on the November general election ballot in Alaska, where it passed with 63% of the vote.

The ballot language said, "This initiative would ban ballot listing for some candidates for Congress. It would apply to candidates for U.S. Senator who have, at the end of the current term, been a senator 12 of the last 18 years. It would also apply to candidates for U.S. Representative who have, at the end of the current term, been a Representative 6 of the last 12 years. These candidates may still receive write-in votes. The ban would not take effect until 24 other states adopt similar bans or Congressional term limits. Service in Congress before then would not be counted toward the ban."
