Wording of November 6, 2012 Referrendum 5 (and others)
On October 20, 2011, the Maryland General Assembly passed and Governor Martin O'Malley signed into law Senate Bill 1 to enact Maryland's 2011 Congressional Districts.
An Aug 17, 2012 court decision makes implementation of that law subject to a Yes-No veto referendum, that will now appear on the November 6, 2012 general election ballot.
