The 12-GeY Upgrade at Jefferson Lab will create an opportunity to dramatically extend our knowledge of the magnetic form factor of the neutron (GnM) and the other elastic, electromagnetic form factors. We describe here an approved experiment that will cover a Q2 range (3.5 - 14 GeV2) with significant discovery potential. Different theoretical approaches (generalized parton distributions, Dyson-Schwinger equations, etc) diverge is this region and existing data cannot distinguish among them. The proposed measurement will be performed in Hall B with the CLAS12 detector and will have statistical and systematic uncertainties below 3%. It is based on the ratio of electron-neutron to electron-proton scattering that was successfully applied in the CLAS detector at Jefferson Lab.
