      Lawmakers endorse early voting measure

      The early voting period would end the Wednesday before Election Day.


      Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow early voting, though some contend it would be too limited.


      The proposal would permit early voting on six days -- but not on Saturday or Sunday. The early voting period would end the Wednesday before Election Day.


      House members passed the measure 92-57 on Wednesday. It cleared the Senate earlier this week 22-8, so it will be on the ballot this year.


      Another early voting proposal also could appear on the fall ballot. An initiative petition would allow early voting for six weeks -- including weekends for the final 21 days before an election.
