The Michigan Declaration of Independence Language Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot in Michigan as an initiated constitutional amendment. If enacted this measure would have added passages from the Declaration of Independence to the state constitution. The measure was sponsored by Patrick McGilvery, who said his proposal is not part of an organized effort.[1]

In order to place the measure on the November 2012 ballot supporters were required to collect a minimum of 322,609 valid signatures and submit them to the Michigan Secretary of State by July 9, 2012.

On Monday, March 19, 2012, the Board of State Canvassers approved the form and language of the ballot measure petition, clearing it for circulation. This review process does not certify the amendment's language.[1]
