The Missouri City, County, and Village Reorganization Amendment, also known as Issue 11, was on the February 26, 1924 ballot in Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.[1]

The measure would have allowed counties to be consolidated, barred counties from submitting a change of border more than once every five years, prohibited sheriffs from succeeding themselves, and required the General Assembly to account for all county offices. The measure also set forth the circumstances for classifying and chartering new cities and details the power each city government will have within its own borders.[2]
