YEAR 1998 ADVISORY VOTE
House Bill No. 644

Long and short ballot titles are provided by the Idaho Attorney General's office


SHORT BALLOT TITLE

ADVISORY QUESTION ASKING WHETHER BALLOT ACCESS RESTRICTIONS SHOULD CONTINUE FOR OTHER OFFICES SINCE THEY ARE INAPPLICABLE TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

LONG BALLOT TITLE

ADVISORY QUESTION PROMULGATED BY THE IDAHO LEGISLATURE STATING THAT THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT HAS INVALIDATED BALLOT ACCESS RESTRICTIONS AS THEY APPLY TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS; ASKING WHETHER BALLOT ACCESS RESTRICTIONS SHOULD REMAIN IN PLACE FOR STATE ELECTED OFFICIALS, STATE LEGISLATORS, COUNTY ELECTED OFFICIALS, CITY ELECTED OFFICIALS AND SCHOOL DISTRICT TRUSTEES DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE SAME BALLOT ACCESS RESTRICTIONS CANNOT APPLY TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

QUESTION

Since the United States Supreme Court has ruled that Idaho's 1994 term limits law does not apply to members of Congress, shall term limits for state elected officials, state legislators, county elected officials, city elected officials and school district trustees remain in place?
