The Missouri Redistricting Amendment did not appear on the November 2012 ballot in the state of Missouri as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed measure would have turned over the redistricting process to a group of nonpartisan legislative staff. Lawmakers would only be allowed an up-or-down vote on the maps and cannot amend the maps. The commission would not be allowed to use any type of political data such as incumbents' home addresses or party affiliations.[1]

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