The Missouri Grand Jury Investigation of Elections Amendment, also known as Issue 8, was on the November 5, 1912 ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment in Missouri where it was defeated.[1]

The measure would have given grand juries power to open ballot boxes, compel the production of registration lists, voting lists and tally sheets during investigations of elections. It would have also provided for prescribing the manner of selection and the qualifications of election officials and would have required policemen to be stationed in and near polling places in cities.[2]
