The Oklahoma Military Service While In Office Amendment did not make the November 2012 ballot in the state of Oklahoma as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have let voters decide on whether or not state officeholders could keep their position if called up to military service. The measure was introduced during 2012 state legislative session.
Path to the ballot
The Oklahoma State Legislature can approve a proposed amendment by a majority vote. However, if the state legislature wants the proposed amendment to go on a special election ballot, it has to approve the amendment by a 2/3rds vote.
The measure was approved by the Oklahoma House of Representatives on February 15, 2012, sending it to the Oklahoma Senate for a full vote.
