The Missouri Term Limits Initiative was a citizen-initiated ballot initiative, proposed as an initiated constitutional amendment to the Missouri Constitution, whose supporters hoped to qualify for the 2010 ballot in Missouri.[1] It was not certified for the 2010 ballot.

A petition sample form was approved for circulation by the Missouri Secretary of State's office on December 15, 2008. The official ballot title was certified on January 6, 2009.

Text of measure


The official ballot title was:[2]

Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to limit the number of terms a person may serve as lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, or state auditor to two terms, including service of any partial terms of more than two years, but excluding terms in those offices resulting from an election prior to December 4, 2008?

Fiscal impact estimate

According to the fiscal estimate produced by election officials, "It is estimated this proposal will have no costs or savings to state or local governmental entities."
