Missouri’s constitution provides that “all elections shall be free and open; and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage.” This is a problem, according to a large bloc of the state’s lawmakers who want to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage. So they are currently pushing a state constitutional amendment that will strip away some of this right. The amendment already passed the state house and is currently pending before the Missouri senate.
