The North Dakota Direct Democracy and Publicity Pamphlet Referendum, also known as Referendum 2, was on the November 4, 1958 ballot in North Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.[1] The measure would have changed the number of signatures required to qualify a ballot initiative in North Dakota for the ballot from 10,000 for initiated state statutes and initiated constitutional amendments and 7,000 for veto referendums to 10 and 7 percent, respectively, of all electors voting for the office of governor at the last preceding gubernatorial election. It also required the secretary of state to print and mail to each elector a publicity pamphlet, which would contain a copy of each measure with its ballot title. Any citizen could submit arguments concerning any measure in the pamphlet by subscribing their names and addresses to the arguments and paying a fee.[2]
