The South Carolina Gubernatorial Elections Amendments may appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of South Carolina as legislatively-referred constitutional amendments. One measure would require that candidates for governor to select their running mates for lieutenant governor. The proposal was introduced in 2011 legislative session.[1]

Path to the ballot

Section 1 of Article XVI of the South Carolina Constitution says that a legislatively-referred amendment can go on the ballot if approved by a 2/3rds vote of each house of the South Carolina State Legislature.

During late April 2011 the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the measure to be considered before the full Senate with a vote of 18-4.

On April 26, 2012, the measure passed the Senate with a vote of 34-1. The measure was later approved by the South Carolina House of Representatives, and therefore it was sent to the ballot[1]
