Support


Protect North Dakota’s Constitution is a citizen’s initiative, driven by North Dakotans.

It’s not a red issue. It’s not a blue issue. It’s a North Dakota issue.

The North Dakota Constitution has faced a proposed amendment by initiated measure in every election cycle over the past decade. Numerous initiated measures were funded entirely or primarily by out-of-state monies and interests.
