The Wyoming Term Limits Initiative was on the November 3, 1992 ballot in Wyoming. It was the second citizen initiative to appear on the Wyoming ballot. It is one of just six initiatives that have appeared on that state's ballot through the initiative process since 1968, when Wyoming voters first had access to citizen initiative, and one of only three to be approved.

It passed, with 150,113 voters in favor, and 44,424 voters opposed.

The principal sponsor of the initiative was Dave Dawson of Caspar, Wyoming. 24,646 valid signatures were filed by its sponsors to earn its way onto the Wyoming ballot.

In Cathcart v. Meyer, a 2004 decision of the Wyoming Supreme Court, the state's high court decided that the 1992 initiative was an unconstitutional violation of Section 3 of Article I and Section 2 of Article III of the Wyoming Constitution.
