The West Virginia Redistricting Commission Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of West Virginia as a legislative referral. The measure would have created a commission for state legislative redistricting purposes, which occur every 10 years in the state. Supporters of the proposed measure claim that creating a commission would help take politics out of the process of redistricting.[1]

According to reports, the measure could be introduced during the 2012 state legislative session. Delegate Patrick Lane proposed similar measures during two special sessions in 2011, but both failed during those sessions.
