2012 Ballot Measure Election Results:Kentucky
By Kristen Horn
This measure, a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, addressed the rights of residents to hunt and fish in the state. Presented in Kentucky’s 2011 legislative session, this measure was proposed with the purpose of mandating that hunting and fishing should never be outlawed without the vote of the people. The measure was sponsored by Representatives Leslie Combs and Greg Stumbo.
According to the Kentucky’s Secretary of State’s website this measure has been approved overwhelmingly with 84.49% voting yes and 15.51% voting no. Election results are not yet official, as a canvassing of the results will not be done until later this month.
