The Minnesota Corporate Personhood Amendment did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in Minnesota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed amendment would have defined the term "person" as "natural person" wherever it appears in the Minnesota Constitution, excluding corporations as persons.[1]

Text of measure

The question would have been presented to voters as follows:[2]

"Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to define "person" to mean natural person?"

  • YES
  • NO

Constitutional Changes

The proposed amendment would have amended Article XIII of the Minnesota Constitution.[2]

Path to the ballot
