The Alabama General Officer Amendment did not make the November 2012 ballot in the state of Alabama as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure dealt with the appointment of general officers of the National Guard of Alabama. If sent to the ballot and enacted by voters, the amendment would have altered the state constitution to require that a person appointed as a general officer be a registered voter of Alabama. The proposal's formal title in 2011 state legislative session was Senate Bill 125.
Path to the ballot
Article XVIII of the Alabama Constitution says that it takes a three-fifths (60%) vote of the Alabama State Legislature to qualify an amendment for the ballot.
