Voters to Decide on if Missouri Needs a New State Constitution

(MISSOURINET) –  Does Missouri need a new State Constitution? Voters will answer that question in November as one of five ballot questions to be decided. If it passes, Missouri would be required to call together a constitutional convention and decide on whether to leave it as-is, make a few changes, or completely rewrite it. Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft says Missouri’s current state constitution was adopted in 1945:

If it passes, delegates will be selected and will decide what, if any, changes to make to the State Constitution. The revised Constitution would then go before Missouri voters for final approval.
