Amendment 2 was a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.
Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
Constitutional Amendment 2 eliminates term limits for county elected officials. The current constitutional provision prohibits elected county officials from seeking any county office after two four-year terms but allows them to seek county office again after a two-year layoff. This amendment would remove all restrictions. If adopted, elected county officials could seek and be elected to an unlimited number of terms, consecutive or otherwise.
