will not appear on a ballot
A Oregon Complete Ballot Text Initiative did not make the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have required that the full text of proposed initiatives appear on the ballot.[1]

Text of measure

The official ballot title is:[1]

Amends Constitution: For certain initiatives, ballot measures must contain measure's full text; text appears before other explanatory information.

Result of "Yes" Vote: "Yes" vote requires ballot to contain full text of initiative measure with operative language of certain length; text appears after measure number, before other information.

Result of "No" Vote: "No" vote retains existing law, which requires certain types of explanatory information to appear on ballot, but does not require measure's text to be included.

Summary: Amends constitution. Current law requires certain explanatory information (including, but not limited to, the caption and measure number) for all state and local initiative measures to be printed directly on ballot; does not require measure's text to appear on ballot. This measure applies only to initiative measures containing 100 or fewer words, not counting any enacting or amendatory clause in the measure. Requires that full text of measure be printed on the ballot after the measure number. Requires text to be followed by provision allowing for a "yes" or "no" vote. Allows ballot to contain explanatory information after measure, including ballot title, caption, or other information, but requires that information to appear after the measure number, text, and "yes" or "no" vote provision. Other provisions.
