1996 Virginia ballot measures

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1996 Virginia State Elections took place on Election Day, November 5, 1996, the same day as the Presidential, U.S. Senate, and U.S. House elections in the state. The only statewide elections on the ballot were five constitutional referendums to amend the Virginia State Constitution. Because Virginia state elections are held on off-years, no statewide officers or state legislative elections were held. All referendums were referred to the voters by the Virginia General Assembly.[1]

Question 1

This amendment asked voters to turn all state employees' investments in the government-controlled retirement fund system into trust fund accounts.

Question 2

The Victims' Rights Act amendment asked voters the following question:

"Shall the Constitution of Virginia be amended to provide that the victims of crime shall be treated with fairness, dignity, and respect in the criminal justice process and that the General Assembly may define, by law, the rights of victims of crime?"

Question 5

This amendment would have removed language which prohibited the General Assembly from passing a law permitting incorporation of any church or religious organization. Although the amendment was narrowly rejected, the aforementioned language in the Virginia State Constitution was ruled unconstitutional by the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia in the case Falwell v. Miller in 2002.[2] The language was later removed by another amendment in 2006.
