Election Contests and Ballot Measures

November 6, 2012 Missouri General Election

Missouri

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

Only federal and state office contests and ballot measures are presented. Hopefully, with your financial support we will be able to cover all county, local and judicial contests in future elections.

Referendums and Ballot Measures
Constitutional Amendment No. 3: Selection Of Supreme Court And Court Of Appeals Judges
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to change the current nonpartisan selection of supreme court and court of appeals judges to a process that gives the governor increased authority to:* appoint a majority of the commission that selects these court nominees; and* appoint all lawyers to the commission by removing the requirement that the governor's appointees be nonlawyers? There are no estimated costs or savings expected if this proposal is approved by voters.INSTRUCTIONS TO VOTERSIf you are in favor of this question, place an X in the box opposite "YES".If you are opposed to this question, place an X in the box opposite "NO".
Proposition A: Transferring Certain Obligations And Control Of The City'S Police Force
Shall Missouri law be amended to:* allow any city not within a county (the City of St. Louis) the option of transferring certain obligations and control of the city's police force from the board of police commissioners currently appointed by the governor to the city and establishing a municipal police force;* establish certain procedures and requirements for governing such a municipal police force including residency, rank, salary, benefits, insurance, and pension; and* prohibit retaliation against any employee of such municipal police force who reports conduct believed to be illegal to a superior, government agency, or the press?State governmental entities estimated savings will eventually be up to $500,000 annually. Local governmental entities estimated annual potential savings of $3.5 million; however, consolidation decisions with an unknown outcome may result in the savings being more or less than estimated.INSTRUCTIONS TO VOTERSIf you are in favor of this question, place an X in the box opposite "YES".If you are opposed to this question, place an X in the box opposite "NO".
Proposition B: Create The Health And Education Trust Fund
Shall Missouri law be amended to:* create the Health and Education Trust Fund with proceeds of a tax of $0.0365 per cigarette and 25% of the manufacturer's invoice price for rollyour- own tobacco and 15% for other tobacco products;* use Fund proceeds to reduce and prevent tobacco use and for elementary, secondary, college, and university public school funding; and* increase the amount that certain tobacco product manufacturers must maintain in their escrow accounts, to pay judgments or settlements, before any funds in escrow can be refunded to the tobacco product manufacturer and create bonding requirements for these manufacturers?Estimated additional revenue to state government is $283 million to $423 million annually with limited estimated implementation costs or savings. The revenue will fund only programs and services allowed by the proposal. The fiscal impact to local governmental entities is unknown.
