Missouri Redistricting Ballot Initiative
A ballot initiative is being proposed for the November election that looks to replace the states system for drawing state legislative districts.
The initiative is being presented by Clean Missouri and is designed to have the number of seats won by each party more closely reflect its statewide vote.
Republicans say if voters approve the ballot measure it would increase competitiveness in elections and lead to a General Assembly more representative of voters’ wishes.
Election officials will now need to validate that enough signatures were collected on the initiative before it appears on the ballot November 6th.
