Amendment 1 passed in a landslide in November 2018 with overwhelming bipartisan support.
Yes votes outnumbered No votes by a 1,469,093 to 899,613 margin, with a full 62.021% of voters casting their ballots for reform. It was an overwhelming, landslide, bipartisan victory, with support from communities large and small.
Amendment 1 won a majority of the vote in every state senate district.
It also carried the day in 80 of Missouri’s 114 counties — plus the City of St. Louis — and won in 149 of 163 state house districts.
Amendment 1 earned bipartisan support because of the redistricting provisions in the measure, not in spite of the redistricting portions.
Amendment 1 was supported by national nonpartisan and transpartisan reform organizations who fight against Democratic and Republican gerrymanders across the country
