Making Democracy Work

Clean Missouri Ballot Innitiative

The League of Women Voters of Southwest Missouri is endorsing Amendment 1 on the Nov. 6 ballot. Signatures from Greene County residents and others across Missouri helped put the measure on the ballot. The Missouri Secretary of State's office certified it Aug. 2, allowing it to appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The measure, known as Clean Missouri, would ensure fair voting districts by changing the way new maps are drawn. It would also change campaign contribution and lobbyist gift limits and require certain transparency measures.

The League of Women Voters is part of a growing coalition working for passage of Clean Missouri, including Republicans, Democrats and independents. So far, the Washington Missourian, Kansas City Star, Columbia Daily Tribune and St. Louis Post-Dispatch have endorsed the measure.
