Missourians spoke loudly Tuesday in favor of making state legislators more representative of the people. Voters from across the political spectrum passed Amendment 1, a democracy reform measure also known as Clean Missouri, by large margins. Clean Missouri bans expensive lobbyist gifts, limits big money in politics, opens legislative records to the public, and ensures neither party has an unfair advantage when new legislative maps are drawn.

Voters also overwhelmingly passed Proposition B, raising Missouri's minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2023. This increase will help thousands of Missourians better support themselves and raise healthy families.

Statement from M’Evie Mead, Director of Policy and Organizing for Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri:

"Last night’s results on Clean Missouri (Amendment 1) and Raise Up Missouri (Proposition B) make it clear that Missourians are tired of legislators who prioritize lobbyists and special interests over the will of the people in our state. Planned Parenthood Advocates was proud to be part of the diverse coalition that came together to bring these issues to the ballot and to support their passage — because these issues matter to Planned Parenthood patients.

“Clean Missouri will ensure that Planned Parenthood patients, and all Missourians, have access to and the attention of their elected officials.

“We know that an important part of the decision of when and whether to have a child includes the ability to afford to care for that child. Raise Up Missouri is a big step for families and their ability to afford safe housing and health care.”
