JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missourians have been weighing in on an unusually large number of proposed changes to the state constitution this year.
Tuesday's ballot features four proposals, including an amendment to base teacher evaluations largely on student performance data. Proposed Constitutional Amendment 3 is opposed by public education groups, and the sponsors have quit campaigning for it.
Proposed constitutional amendment 6 would create a six-day, no-excuses-needed early voting period for general elections, but only if the state provides funding.
Proposed constitutional amendment 2 would allow allegations of past criminal acts to be used against those facing sex-related charges involving victims under 18 years old.
Proposed constitutional amendment 10 would allow lawmakers to override a governor's decision to freeze or slow spending on items in the state budget.
