On Tuesday, Nov. 4, Missouri voters will cast their ballot for local, state and federal elections, as well as four proposed constitutional amendments, three of which originated in the General Assembly as joint resolutions.
Proposed Constitutional Amendments
Constitutional Amendment 2, which addresses the prosecution of sexual crimes against children, began as House Joint Resolution 16 during the 2013 legislative session, sponsored by Rep. John McCaherty, R-High Ridge, and carried in the upper chamber by Sen. Rob Schaaf, R-St. Joseph. The measure was approved by a vote of 30-2 in the Senate, sending it to the secretary of state for inclusion on the 2014 general election ballot.
