The Missouri "Fair Elections Act" did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have changed the margin by which lawmakers must unanimously override an initiative and create a citizens commission appointed by legislative leaders to approve ballot descriptions.[1][2]

The proposed legislation was expected to be filed for discussion in Missouri's 2012 legislative session. It was supported by Rep. Shane Schoeller.[1]
