North Dakota Voters Defeat Constitutional Amendment
Voters defeated a constitutional amendment changing the membership and meeting requirements of the state board of higher education.
The failure of the measure keeps the number of individuals who serve on the state board of higher education at eight and their terms of membership at four years.
The amendment would have increased board membership to 15 and increased membership terms to six years and prohibited state legislators, elected state officials, and full-time state employees from serving on the board.
As of Wednesday morning, with 91% of the votes counted, the measure was overwhelmingly defeated by 45%.
