August 3, 2010

JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri: Voters in the state of Missouri made their way to the polls on August 3 to voice their opinion on Proposition C, also known as the Health Care Freedom Question. The vote represented the first time that voters anywhere in the country had a chance to officially register their views on parts of the federal government’s 2010 health care reform. As polls closed and precincts reported their numbers, voters voiced their opinion loud and clear.[1]

As of 10:41 p.m. CST on August 3, numbers showed that Missouri voters had approved the measure, with a little more than 70 percent of those who chimed in on the proposal voting 'yes'.

The ballot proposition was referred to the ballot by the Missouri State Legislature. The Missouri State Senate voted 26-8 in favor of placing the proposed measure on the ballot on May 4.[2][3][4] On May 11, the House gave final approval to refer the measure to the ballot following a 108-47 vote.
