One statewide ballot measure was on the August 3, 2010 ballot in Missouri.

Five statewide ballot measures were on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Missouri.


Four initiatives submitted signatures as of May 2, 2010, the petition drive deadline. Two of those four measures were certified for the November 2 ballot. A third measure, known as the "real estate taxation amendment," was referred to the ballot following a Cole County Circuit Court ruling on August 31.[1]

A total of twenty-three ballot initiatives were approved for circulation by the Missouri Secretary of State for the ballot.[2] According to the Secretary of State's office about 100 petitions were filed.[3]

At least nine legislative referrals were proposed for the 2010 ballot, however, as of the end of the legislative session on May 17, 2010 only three were certified for the 2010 ballot.

Aftermath

Months following the 2010 vote, on April 27, 2011 Gov. Jay Nixon signed a revision of Proposition B after a proposed compromise was approved by the Missouri General Assembly. Read more about the changes here.

  2. On May 2, 2010 a total of 23 filed initiatives "approved for circulation" were listed on the secretary of state's website; a lower number than previously reported. There was no indication on the state website why the number has decreased; whether it be because initiatives were withdrawn, expired or were duplicates.
  3. On February 1, 2010 a total of 31 filed initiatives were listed on the Missouri Secretary of State's website. After contacting the secretary of state's office on February 23, 2010 by email it was verified that the state does not list every "initially proposed petition." The list of initiatives provided by the state includes only "2010 Initiative Petitions Approved for Circulation in Missouri. On May 2, 2010 the Missouri Secretary of State's office confirmed that about 100 initiatives were filed. But these initiative are not listed anywhere that could be viewed online. As a result, we and the general public have no access to them.
