Updated Aug. 31 with appeals court decision

A Missouri appeals court Monday changed the summary of a ballot item aimed at repealing a state legislative redistricting system voters approved in 2018.

Amendment 3 would effectively eliminate the Clean Missouri system that gave power to draw House and Senate districts to a nonpartisan demographer. Cole County Judge Patricia Joyce contended the summary the Legislature wrote to describe it was "misleading, unfair and insufficient" — and provided a new description that voters would see on their ballots.

There is one sure thing about drawing House and Senate districts in Missouri: Someone who is unhappy with the final product will file a lawsuit, and courts will have to sort out whether complex rules were violated in the process.
