A Lincoln County Advisory Vote to Amend measure was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Lincoln County, which is in Oregon, where it was approved.

This measure indicated that the voters of Lincoln County wish to urge the Oregon State Legislature and United States Congress to overturn the United States Supreme Court decisions of Citizens United v. The Federal Elections Commission and American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock and the State of Montana, which decisions state that under the United States Constitution’s First Amendment corporations and unions are “persons” who should be treated as individuals in political speech, thereby removing campaign finance restrictions on corporate and union spending on political campaigns.[1]
