After gathering 38,451 signatures, an anti-corruption measure will appear on the November 6 ballot in North Dakota.

If the measure is approved by voters, the ethics commission will be responsible for adopting rules related to elections, lobbying, and for reporting and investigating alleged violations of those rules and related state laws.

Additionally, the measure prohibits gifts from lobbyists, prohibits the delivery of campaign contributions by lobbyists, and creates a revolving door provision banning public officials from becoming lobbyists for two years after leaving office.

This is the first ballot measure to receive enough signatures to appear in front of voters this November.
