Among the many issues and candidates Missouri residents voted on today, five proposed amendments to the state constitution have played a particularly prominent role in the pre-election conversation. Missouri Business Alert has kept a close eye on four of those: Amendment 1, which would strengthen the rights of farmers and ranchers; Amendment 5, which would increase electronic privacy protections for citizens; Amendment 7, which would institute a sales tax to fund transportation projects; and Amendment 9, which would enhance the language of the constitution regarding gun rights.

We’ll update the table below throughout the night with the latest numbers from each of those races.

Amendment Yes No  Precincts reporting (Of 3898)
1 50.1 49.9 3898
5 61.0 39.0 3898
7 40.8 59.2 3898
9 74.8 25.2 3898

The video and articles below take a closer look at the four proposed amendments.
