November 6, 2018 Voter Guide
Amendment 1: Clean MO Initiative
Although the League is nonpartisan and does not support candidates or parties, we do take positions on issues. We support Amendment 1 because it is an important step in making Missouri legislators responsible to voters, not outside interests. Nearly 350,000 Missourians in all counties support Amendment 1, which will be on the Nov. 6 ballot. Please share with your friends and neighbors. We believe Missouri needs this change.
To read the Statement of Support for Amendment 1 from Kathleen Boswell, President of the League of Women Voters of Missouri, click here.
