NOVEMBER 8 ELECTION
Constitutional Amendment 1
Missouri’s parks, soils and water sales tax
Amendment 1 allows Missourians to decide if the state should continue its one-tenth of one
percent sales and use tax, which is used to support soil and water conservation and finance the state park and historic sites system.
The tax was first approved by voters in 1984, and then again in 1988, 1996 and 2006. The tax generates approximately $90 million each year for soil and water conservation, and for the operation of the state park system, which has 88 parks and historic sites.
Constitutional Amendment 2
Campaign contribution limits
The proposed amendment will re-establish campaign contribution limits in Missouri. Limits were first approved by voters in 1994, but they were removed by the Legislature in 2008. Contributions would be capped at $2,600 per election for individual candidates and $25,000 for political parties under the measure.
Constitutional Amendment 3
Cigarette tax increase for early childhood education
The proposal would steadily increase taxes on cigarettes until 2020, when the total increase would reach 60 cents a pack. The amendment also would create a 67-cents-per-pack fee for wholesalers on certain discount-brand cigarettes.
The higher taxes would generate between $263 million and $374 million each year, with the revenues placed in an Early Childhood Health and Education Trust Fund and used for early childhood education.
Cigarette tax increase for transportation infrastructure
A second cigarette tax increase proposal would phase in a 23-cent increase over five years, with the proceeds going to fix roads and bridges. The proposal also would increase the tax that sellers pay on other tobacco products by 5 percent of the manufacturer’s invoice price.
When fully implemented, the tax increases would generate approximately $95 million to $103 million annually.
Constitutional Amendment 4
Prohibition on new sales and use taxes
The amendment would prohibit state or local sales or use taxes on services, such as haircuts or lawnmower repairs.
It comes in response to states such as North Carolina and Washington, which have enacted taxes on services as a way to avoid raising income or property taxes.
Constitutional Amendment 6
Photo identification for voters
This amendment will allow voters to decide if the Constitution should be changed to require voters to present a specified form of identification in order to cast a ballot. Valid forms would include photo IDs issued by the state, the federal government or the military. The proposal also would require the state to pay for individuals to obtain a valid ID if they do not have one, or to obtain documents necessary for an ID.
The proposal also contains a provision allowing a voter without a valid photo
ID to vote by signing an affidavit.
