AMAC Members Play Pivotal Role in Missouri Election Integrity Win

The Missouri Senate recently passed a constitutional amendment that would prohibit the use of ranked-choice voting and make sure that only citizens of the United States may vote in the state’s elections.

AMAC members in Missouri played a pivotal role in prompting the Senate to pass SJR 78. In response to an AMAC Action call-to-action, the membership in Missouri sent 460 messages directly to their Senators in support of this resolution.

This was a collaborative effort with AMAC Action working with the Election Transparency Initiative, the Liberty Alliance USA, and the Honest Elections Project.

SJR 78 places a referendum on the ballot that would allow voters in November to decide whether to amend the Missouri Constitution to include these important election integrity measures.

According to a press release from the Election Transparency Initiative, allowing only US citizens to vote in elections is “an overwhelmingly obvious and popular position with Missouri voters,” and this resolution ”further provides that voters shall have only a single vote and that under no circumstance shall he or she be permitted to cast a ballot in a manner that results in the ranking of candidates for a particular office.”

The dreadful ranked-choice voting method has been used in other states and is associated with what the Election Transparency Initiative describes as manufacturing “a majority winner by routinely ‘exhausting’—or throwing out—thousands of ballots so candidates need only win a majority of the remaining votes, not a majority of all votes cast.”

AMAC Action President Bob Carlstrom issued this statement following the big win in Missouri:

“AMAC’s nearly 51,000 members in Missouri have made it very clear that they treasure their right to vote. The Ranked-Choice Voting scheme has been proven to confuse voters and skew election results in other states. This scheme coupled with the Left’s attempt to further corrupt the election process by providing a pathway to vote for people who are in this country illegally are nothing more than shameful tactics to ensure their power in perpetuity.

Kudos to the Senate for passing SJR 78 and making the strong statement that only U.S. citizens may vote in Missouri’s elections and that Ranked-Choice Voting has no place in the state’s election process. Now, the House must follow suit and allow Missouri’s voters to speak their mind on election integrity.”

Attention now shifts to the Missouri House where that body will take up the resolution for consideration. AMAC Action will continue tracking this important resolution and will activate the grassroots again in Missouri, if necessary.

One os the reasons I moved to MO is because the state requires voter I.D. This is another needed safeguard to insure an honest vote takes place without being manipulation by some political party or individuals.

Half way there in Missouri. Now up to their house representatives to do the the right thing.

Good news. Here in ILL, Chicago took away my vote, through Gerrymandering.
