The North Dakota state Capitol in Bismarck is offset by flowers in full bloom in June 2018.

North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger has approved the format of a petition for circulation that aims to eliminate property taxes in the state by a public vote.

Jaeger announced his approval of the petition format on Wednesday. Measure supporters, led by state Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, need 26,904 valid signatures submitted to Jaeger's office by July 6 to place the measure on the Nov. 3 ballot.

The proposed measure would change the state constitution if it goes to voters in November and is approved by a majority. State revenues would replace local property taxes.

North Dakota voters in 2012 handily defeated a similar measure, with more than 76% of voters rejecting it.
