Amendments to the North Dakota Constitution have always required the approval of a majority of voters. Between 1889 and 1914, the power to propose amendments the Constitution rested with the North Dakota Legislative Assembly. In 1914, the voter initiative was introduced; between 1914 and 2012, 74 initiated amendments were considered by North Dakota voters.[1]
