The Kentucky Redistricting Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Kentucky as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have set new standards for the process of redistricting for the Kentucky Legislature. Specifically, the measure would have required the general assembly to remain in session without pay if it failed to complete redistricting by April 15. The April 15 date was the mandatory deadline to end a state legislative session in even-numbered years. The measure did not make the ballot.[1]

Path to the ballot

If 60% of the membership of each chamber of the Kentucky General Assembly approves, a proposed amendment goes on the ballot at the next general election during which members of the state legislature are up for election.

The measure was approved by the Senate State and Local Government Committee on March 14, 2012 with a vote of 9-0, sending the measure to the full state senate for a vote. If the measure had been approved by that chamber, it would have then been sent to the Kentucky House of Representatives for a similar vote. However, the measure did not materialize.
