Election aftermath: Missouri Amendment 2 passes by large margin
JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri: The primary election in Missouri has passed, and although voters chimed in on various ballot items, the lone statewide measure on the ballot was also decided.
On August 7, voters overwhelmingly passed Amendment 2 with approximately 83% of the vote.
The measure alters the state constitution by expanding the general constitutional right to religious freedom. The measure specifies that citizens have the right to express their religious beliefs through worship "in private or public settings, on government premises, on public property, and in all public schools." The measure mandates that public schools display the U.S. Bill of Rights.
