Four measures will appear on the North Dakota ballot on November 6, 2018.

Measure No. 1 is a constitutional amendment that would establish new mandates on private and public persons related to attempts to influence government. While well-intentioned, Measure 1 is poorly drafted, cannot be easily fixed, and is a threat to the mission of churches and charities. Among its many problems, it would force churches to divulge the private information its members or contributors as the “price” for speaking on a public issue. The North Dakota Catholic Conference urges a NO vote on Measure 1. Find out more.

Measure 2
is constitutional amendment to state that “only a citizen” of the United States is a qualified elector, instead of the current provision that states “every citizen” of the United States is a qualified elector. The North Dakota Catholic Conference has no position on Measure 2. Catholics should use their informed prudential judgment.

Measure 3
is a statutory measure to legalize recreational marijuana. It removes practically every law concerning marijuana and has no limits how much or where a person could grow, sell, or use marijuana. It is a threat to health, safety, and the common good. The North Dakota Catholic Conference urges a NO vote on Measure 3. Find out more.

Measure 4
is a statutory measure requiring the Department of Transportation to issue red personalized vehicle plates to volunteer emergency responders. The North Dakota Catholic Conference has no position on Measure 4. Catholics should use their informed prudential judgment.
