In November 2018, Missouri citizens will vote on Amendment 1, also known as Clean Missouri. Clean Missouri focuses on ethics and political reform of the Missouri State Legislature, in the areas of lobbying, campaign finance, public records, and redistricting. This article briefly reviews the proposals of Amendment 1 and pays special attention to the issues of redistricting in Missouri. It places Missouri’s current redistricting system into context, offers an evaluation of the current system, and estimates the potential effects of the newly proposed redistricting system on political outcomes in Missouri.
