Oklahoma Legislative Session Amendment (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
An Oklahoma Legislative Session Amendment did not make the November 2012 statewide ballot in the state of Oklahoma as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure was proposed to mandate that legislative session only adjourn every other year in the state. The measure was proposed by State Senator Tom Ivester, who introduced the measure in legislative session in 2011. If the measure had been passed by both chambers of the Oklahoma Legislature, it would have appeared on the 2012 ballot.
Path to the ballot
The Oklahoma State Legislature can approve a proposed amendment by a majority vote. However, if the state legislature wants the proposed amendment to go on a special election ballot, it has to approve the amendment by a 2/3rds vote.
