This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot
The Virginia Gubernatorial Term Limits Amendment will not appear on the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Virginia as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

The measure would have allowed governors to serve two consecutive terms.[1]

As of 2011, the state of Virginia is the only state to not allow current governors to seek re-election while in office. Currently, governors are allowed to run for office again after being out of office for at least four years.[1]

If the proposal is approved in the 2012 legislative session, the measure will still require approval in yet another session before being referred to the statewide ballot. Thus, Governor Bob McDonnell's current term, which ends ends in January, 2014, would not be affected.[1]
