Alabama Secret Ballot Amendment, Amendment 7 (2012)
|Secret Ballot Amendment|
|Referred by:||Alabama Legislature|
|Status:||On the ballot|
- House Democrats have argued that it's not government's job to mandate how elections are done in a business.
Path to ballot
The House Constitution, Campaigns and Elections Committee approved of sending the measure to the Alabama House of Representatives for debate and vote during the month of March 2011. On March 9, 2011, the Alabama House of Representatives voted to approve the amendment with a tally of 63-31. This sent the proposal to the Alabama State Senate where it faced a similar vote before going on to the 2012 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.
The measure was passed during the last day of 2011 state legislative session, officially sending it to the ballot in 2012 for public vote.
