The Minnesota Majority Vote Amendment did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in Minnesota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed amendment would have required that any single-member district office holder be elected by a majority, rather than a plurality, of the votes cast.[1]

Text of measure

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

"Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to require that an executive officer, judge, or legislator must be elected by a majority of the votes cast at the general election for the office sought?"

  • YES
  • NO

Constitutional Changes

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

Path to the ballot
