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

"Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to provide for staggered terms of office for state senators?"

  • YES
  • NO

Constitutional Changes

The proposed amendment would have amended Article IV, Section 4 of the Minnesota Constitution.[2]

Path to the ballot
