LEARN HOW DEMOCRACY REFORMS BECOME LAW IN MISSOURI
Twenty-six states, including Missouri & DC allow citizen-led ballot initiatives and have a process for citizens to get measures on the ballot to be voted on to become law. This means that a group of citizens may place a measure on the ballot through gathering signatures, and, in some states, getting legislative approval once the set number of signatures is reached.

Some Missouri lawmakers have renewed efforts to make it more difficult to vote by requiring a valid government-issued form of photo identification.They say doing so will reduce fraud without impacting the rights of legitimate voters. Democrats and voting rights advocates say it will disenfranchise minority, elderly, rural and low-income Missourians.
