The Associated Press reports that supporters of a ban on affirmative action in Missouri didn't gather enough signatures to get their proposal on the ballot:

The Missouri effort for a constitutional amendment was led by Tim Asher, a former admissions director at North Central Missouri College in Trenton. Asher said it became obvious on Saturday that there were not enough signatures to qualify the proposed constitutional amendment for the ballot, and he pledged to try again in 2010
